Press Release (ePRNews.com) - LAS VEGAS - Jul 10, 2017 - According to Dr. Dr. Maria, “the emphasis behind writing this book was to illustrate the importance of having a strong organization safety culture for the safety of its workforce and what each employee can do facilitate that culture.”
Safety culture is the attitude, beliefs, perceptions and values that employees share in relation to safety in the workplace. Safety culture is a part of organizational culture, and has been described by the phrase “the way we do things around here.
Studies have found that workplace related disasters are a result of a breakdown in an organization’s policies and procedures that were established to deal with safety, and that the breakdown flows from inadequate attention being paid to safety issues.
A good safety culture can be promoted by senior management commitment to safety, realistic practices for handling hazards, continuous organizational learning, and care and concern for hazards shared across the workforce.
Although there is some uncertainty and ambiguity in defining safety culture, there is no uncertainty over the relevance or significance of the concept. Safety culture is an important concept that forms the environment within which individual safety attitudes develop and persist and safety behaviors are promoted.
The reader will learn what can make or break an organization’s safety culture and what they can do to help ensure one is functional and succeeds.
