Safety Culture

What is a safety culture?

A genuine workplace safety culture reaches far beyond moral, legal and financial obligations. It can also be a key business strength that achieves market leadership. To achieve a sustainable safety culture, managers must own safety, lead safety and engage with people about safety. Every worker is entitled to a safe workplace and appropriately skilled personnel are a crucial factor in ensuring that safety is a key strength.

Appropriate management will help free your organisation from the binds of the incident cycle, and lift your safety performance by establishing new behaviours that will change your culture.

Improving Systems
The best Safety Management Systems are only as effective as the people who use them. eXenet and LJM work together to provide organisations with the ability to develop robust systems and processes that underpin overall safety improvement by incorporating a focus on people in all elements.

Supporting Leadership
In successful organisations, operational managers at all levels take a central role in driving safety improvement.
