What Is the Importance of Building a Strong Safety Culture?

March 19, 2024
March 11, 2024

There are many different feelings that your employees should have when they come to work, such as motivation, excitement and comfort. Most importantly, they should feel safe. That’s where a safety culture comes into play.

What is a safety culture?

Safety culture refers to the core values and perceptions of a company’s, organization’s or facility’s approach to safety. It’s often used in reference to health care, but it also applies to other high-risk industries, such as manufacturing, mining and construction. Building a positive safety culture means that everyone is committed to making safety a priority to minimize the risk of distress or injury.

A positive safety culture includes:

  • Understanding the risks of the job and consistently striving for safe day-to-day operations.
  • Committing to using resources for safety concerns.
  • Working as a team to find answers for employee safety issues.
  • Encouraging employees to report errors without fear of blame or consequences.

The importance of building a strong safety culture 

While building a safety culture may just seem like you’re prioritizing safety, as every type of workplace should, it goes beyond that. A safety culture can improve many facets of the overall company vision to ensure that everyone is playing a role in staying as safe as possible, for example:

  • Decreasing risk of harm.
  • Improving overall quality of work and job satisfaction.
  • Encouraging proper communication among all ranks.
  • Improving teamwork and collaboration.
  • Increasing problem-solving skills among all employees.
