Safety Culture Directors Briefing

Organisational culture is the “way things are done” within an organisation. A poor safety culture has been attributed to the cause of some major accidents – for example, the Chernobyl disaster highlighted the importance of safety culture and the effect of managerial and human factors on safety performance. The term ‘safety culture’ was first used in 1986 and described as: “That assembly of characteristics and attitudes in organizations and individuals which establishes that, as an  overriding priority, nuclear plant safety issues receive the attention warranted by their significance.”

This Directors Briefing takes you through the key aspects of an effective safety culture, why it’s important, what makes a just and fair safety culture and a case study.
