What is Safety Culture?

Workplaces are now being described as if they contained their own little world. Culture is a big term for businesses and is being applied to different professional areas. One of the areas it has been used in heavily is safety. A business is said to have a ‘safety culture’. But what exactly does that mean?

A company’s safety culture is essentially just a collective summary of how, as a company, safety is viewed by the individuals that make it up. What are the attitudes and general feeling about workplace safety as a subject? How do these attitudes play out in the ways that people use or do not use safe practices in their regular activity?

What we are looking for here, and what some companies are accused of lacking, is a positive safety culture. One where safety is upheld and encouraged on all levels. This means the average employee taking the time to do things in the proper way and it also means that corporate and management level professionals appreciate the importance of safety courses and training to improve and maintain up to date safe practices and guidelines.

The term “Safety Culture” may be a current trend but the underlying concept has always played a role in how we understand and carry out workplace safety.
