Join us on Wednesday 20 July 2022 for a webinar presentation titled Prioritising Workplace Safety Culture: The importance of using Safety Culture Indicator’s to influence the Psychological Impact on Workplaces

Understanding the perceptions of safety across an organisation is crucial to proactively mitigate risks and prioritize actions. Effective safety culture evaluation should allow organizations to survey internal employees and their third-party contractors for feedback. This helps to systematically measure the maturity of the organisation’s safety culture and unlock leading indicator insights on strengths, weaknesses, and risks.

Evidence suggests from surveying 284 decision makers across 21 industries, their key priorities are:
- Improving safety culture alignment
- Better integrating internal groups and teams
- Improving communication and engagement within the workplace, including contractors

This presentation will focus on the importance of safety culture and using Safety Culture Indicators to influence Psychological Safety, which can impact improved safety performance and a reduction in Serious Injuries and Fatalities. “Silence kills. You have to create an environment for people to speak up." - shared during Campbell Institute Advisory Council Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion meeting

KEY LEARNING OUTCOMES

Evidence on the importance of safety culture in psychological safety and what drives companies to assure safety culture and the psychological impact of a poor safety culture is number one priority for both their internal employees and third-party contractors. Using concepts on how to measure the safety culture of both internal employees and contracted workforces, with clear guidance on what constitutes a successful approach, ensuring organisations:

1. Continue to create an environment where collecting feedback is prioritized
2. Establish benchmarks, implement changes, and reassess safety culture
3. Analyse safety performance data and safety culture perceptions to identify correlations
 4. Identify and monitor performance and safety culture trends over time
