Can improving the ‘safety culture’ of a company really reduce workplace accidents and injuries?
The ‘Safety Climate Tool’ has been developed by The Health and Safety Laboratory, which is part of the Health and Safety Executive. An online tool for companies, its aim is to measure the overall climate of safety within a company following a series of questions directed to employees. Accidents and injuries at work result in lost working days which cost the economy millions in terms of productivity and it is hoped that tools such as these will help to encourage more safety-consciousness in both employers and employees.
