Driving a Positive Safety Culture: A Checklist for Leaders

Mar 2, 2021

Research has found that 86% of worksites operate in a negative safety culture. In sites like these, safety is seen as a burden, a waste of time or something that gets in the way of getting the job done. There’s a clear case for change. But where should organisations start?

Drawing insights from more than 21,711 workers across industry, we’ve summarised the key recommendations from our Driving a Positive Safety Culture study into one handy checklist for leaders. Featuring 60 individual recommendations, the Driving a Positive Safety Culture – Leader Checklist includes practical steps to improve:

  • Quality of safety procedures
  • Management safety commitment
  • Internal context (including change management)
  • Willingness to report incidents and errors
  • Employee safety performance
  • Safety mission and vision
  • Within-team safety communication
  • Safety responsibility
  • Team support for Safety

Download your free checklist and take your first steps towards a more positive safety culture.
