Creating a Safety Culture

What is a Safety Culture? We believe a Safety Culture can be defined as:

“A safety culture exists when a location has created NORMS such that everyone at that location acts in a way, automatically, as a norm, to remove or reduce risk in everything they do. They do it right, the first time, every time.”

To create a Safety Culture, you need to address:

  1. Knowledge – Clearly train the desired behaviors – that is what the course does.
  2. WIIFM (What’s In It For Me) – Explain why these are the desired behaviors and why it is in the trainee’s best interest to follow these practices.
  3. Consequences – What happens when these practices are not followed?
  4. Professionalism – Any professional driver who causes or contributes to an accident is a failure in their professionalism. No one wants to be a failure.
  5. Leadership – As leaders, you decide the NORMS. It is your job to lead, manage, incentivize and require the drivers to follow these NORMS.
