Is Improving Safety Culture Too Complicated?

Have you ever thought that improving your safety culture was too complicated and would take too long to really be worthwhile? What if you could break up this huge project into a series of logical and well-defined steps and take them at your own pace? You can! That is the message of this talk based on the recent book from John Wiley & Sons, Inc. You can improve your safety culture through a series of "STEPS" (Strategic Targets for Excellent Performance in Safety), guiding you through each milestone along the way. Chances are, you have already taken some of these steps and can move on to the next one.

The first of the suggested STEPS is to decide if you want to pursue Safety Culture Excellence and to explore the rationale and potential benefits of such a journey. Some safety cultures are simply not ready for the trip, while others are so advanced that they may only want to fine tune their efforts with some of these STEPS.
