Safety Culture Maturity

The results of public enquiries into major industrial safety disasters have identified that a positive ‘Safety Culture’ is the missing link between the presence of safety systems and actual safety performance. In response, government regulators and industry associations (e.g. BSEE , DOT , FAA , NRC , OSHA , HSE , CANSO , PSAN , IOSH ,) are heavily focusing on Safety Culture. They recognize that achieving world-class safety performance involves more than mechanically applying a management system: it requires the involvement of everyone in a company, from top to bottom, directing their efforts at continual improvement.

The best way of knowing the status of your current safety culture is to assess it, against a safety culture maturity model that is linked to actual safety performance. Building on the developmental work performed by researchers from the British Health & Safety Executive with 2,500 companies which began in 2007, BSMS have refined the original model from its work performed in a variety of countries and industrial sectors: we developed norms, and produced 'curve' scores to facilitate bench-marking between companies and sectors.

Using Two-Hour Focus Groups exercises in a company over the course of a day or two, with 25-50 attendees at each, the responses are collated, analyzed and written up as a report by BSMS that provides direction to the way forward to maximize the benefits.
