Generic guidance

The generic guidance on safety culture improvement provided by this toolkit is based on a concept of safety culture development with differing levels of safety culture.  The guidance helps identify the key enablers to progress up through the levels.      

Important Point – enhancing safety culture is a key element contributing to improving the overall health and safety performance of an organisation, but it is not all that is necessary.  The guidance provided here focuses on safety culture development only – appropriate attention must also be given to issues raised by the safety management systems (eg. addressing specific audit findings; interpreting and implementing new legislation, etc.) in order to sustain continuous improvement.
