Course Credit: 0.15 CEU, 1.5 PDH

The importance of “Safety Culture” is increasingly recognized as a key element of safe operations. It is acknowledged as being a concept that is difficult to measure (National Academies, Strengthening the Safety Culture of the Oil and Gas Industry, 2016) and is defined by the Bureau of Safety and Environmental Enforcement (BSEE) as having nine separate characteristics.

“Safety Climate” on the other hand is a measure of employees’ socially-shared beliefs about the workplace and the behaviors that they feel are likely to be supported. Safety Climate can be easily and quickly measured, and offers a clear measure of organizations’ true priorities. It provides a universal and cost-effective safety management tool that enables comparison between corporate units, even those that use different technologies and perform different jobs.

Prof. Dov Zohar will explain the components of Safety Climate and its role in a Safety Management System. He will also summarize case studies and strategies for its improvement, and explain how Safety Climate can be bench marked and reliably compared across organizations.
