The assessment toolkit
Skip Navigation LinksAbout this toolkit > The assessment toolkit


There are many differing models of safety culture, however they all tend to focus on very similar areas.  The RSSB safety culture assessment approach reflects consideration of these and is based around the following 4 key elements (of a ‘positive’ safety culture), 11 ‘factors’ and associated 'sub-factors':

The main assessment tool is the survey that includes 54 questions to assess employee attitudes, values and perceptions towards safety and safety management systems across the 11 safety culture ‘factors’.  The survey can be tailored to an individual company by defining the job roles, departments and locations to be included in the survey.

The survey is distributed and completed, either via hard copy or directly on-line.  The software then allows a range of analyses to be conducted that automatically generate results-specific guidance.
