Cultural and Behavioural Analysis

A key element to improving safety culture is involving your workforce in the health and safety decision-making process. For this to happen, your workforce needs to be engaged and informed of the benefits of working safely. They should also be prepared to report their mistakes, near misses and accidents.

With a comprehensive cultural and behavioural analysis through Callidus Health & Safety you can improve attitudes to safety which in turn lowers the number of accidents, reduces lost days due to illness and improves overall performance.

What is Safety Culture?

Safety culture can be described as the way your business approaches health and safety and the attitudes of your employees from senior management to boots on the ground.

  • How people within your organisation feel about safety
  • How people within your organisation act
  • What policies and procedures your organisation has in place

Promoting a positive safety culture

It can take time to change the culture within a business. Attitudes towards health and safety can often be negative and the challenge lies in shifting this attitude to one that more accurately reflects ‘modern day health and safety’ – that is not simply ticking-boxes but a health and safety that improves the atmosphere within the workplace and promotes happy, productive and safe practice.

  • Ensure appropriate working practices and rules are in place to effectively control hazards
  • Encourage a positive attitude towards risk management and compliance with the control processes
  • Learn from near misses and safety performance indicators to bring about continual improvement

Changing a workforce’s attitude

To effect a positive change in a workforce’s attitude to safety there must be clear leadership from the top of the organisation. With this in place you can realistically achieve:

  • Lower number of accidents and near misses due to unsafe behaviours
  • Reduce lost days due to work-related illness or injury
  • Improve productivity and performance
