Safety Culture Profiling®
Safety Culture is a complex topic, and most companies do not understand their cultures well enough to succeed with safety culture changes and the challenges this can create. Our professional services are based on our unique, integrated Safety Culture Profiling method that focuses on the interactions between Safety Management Systems, Safety Behavior and people's Hearts & Minds, which together forge a company's Safety Culture.
Despite excellent managerial systems, people may still not behave in expected ways because of their attitude, belief and value systems. Conversely, people may take safety seriously, but still behave unexpectedly to overcome challenges presented by system malfunctions. Taking these inter-relationships into account, our Safety Culture Profiling method can tell you if your Safety Culture is 'World Class (i.e. Low Risk), Good (i.e. Medium Risk), or Poor (i.e. High Risk).
You may already have a view of your likely Risk-Rating based on current Incident Rate trends, but you won't really know unless your Safety Culture has been fully assessed. Many companies rely on the sole use of Safety Perception Surveys, but often the results of these are misaligned with Safety Management System Audit results and/or Behavioral Safety scores. This can be seen in the profile below, which indicates actual Safety Behaviors are lagging behind people's perceptions and the results of an SMS audit.
BSMS Inc have the practical and academic experience to help you holistically assess your Safety Culture to arrive at tailored solutions. In partnership with clients, we create sustainable, long-term results by using best 'management of change' practices, developing milestones and measurable Key Performance Indicators.
