Like living things, safety cultures are not manufactured ...
they are grown - EVOLVED!
Today, with professional assessment and strategic planning support, and the specialised tools and training now available: Organisations can evolve their own safety culture!
A business’ safety culture is the sum of its peoples’ personalities, values and behaviours - it is living and constantly changing but requires focus and direction.
Any business can be assisted to develop the safety awareness of its people and culture with the unique assessments, coaching and training tools now available. Managers and employees can be coached and trained to develop their personal safety awareness attitudes, abilities and responsibility.
A few are proven, competency based and has achieved national recognition (Course in Advanced Safety Awareness – Australia).
What is clear is that any business can now evolve, and is best able to develop its own safety culture with the self-managing assessment and coaching tools now available. A safety culture is best driven from within the organisation. After all, the culture is there every day! Every business can develop the safety awareness of its people.
Evolving a safety aware culture is not difficult - just different! Developing safety awareness attitudes, as some have found, is not the same as training skills. Achieving a safety culture is more analogous to professional team sport, where personal attributes are coached individually but within a framework of team identity and toward team objectives.
A healthy safety culture is foremost people focused and characterised by individual personal responsibility, willing participation, professional pride, shared identity and commitment to continuous improvement.
