Safety Culture is key and we specialise in developing & promoting a strong positive workplace safety culture.
Culture is key to improving health and safety in your organisation. A cultural approach doesn’t replace other approaches, but it underpins them and makes them more successful.
When we talk about health and safety culture, we are talking about ‘how we do things around here’. All our behaviours reflect how we think: our assumptions, beliefs and attitudes. Everyone has a shared safety mindset and works together to achieve common goals.
Our five pillars of safety to strengthen the health and safety culture of your organisation
Lead by Example
As a leader, your words and actions shape how things are done.
In strong workplace cultures, people are valued for themselves as well as for their ideas.
Keep it simple and tailor what you are saying so that everyone understands.
Get everyone working together to solve issues and develop, review and improve work processes and standards.
Organisations with a robust health and safety culture learn from past lessons.
Cultural change takes leadership
a plan and perseverance
