Building a Safety Culture

Building a Safety Culture

Building a Safety Culture
Organizations can prevent injuries by creating a culture of safety. Dilley and Kleiner (1996) argued that creating a culture of safety means that employees are constantly aware of the hazards in the workplace. According to Cooper (2001), many managers and safety practitioners do not know what a “safety culture” is. A safety culture integrates safety in all organizational systems. Thus, safety should be a principal and measurable organizational goal, known to all, and with accountability throughout the organization (Safety Management Systems, 2009).
