Safety Culture and its impact on safety

  • Svanemøllens Kaserne, BYGN 118 AUD 1 Ryvangs Allé DK-2100 Copenhagen Ø (map)

As an Ukranian Captain once said: "I am coming from a culture where a real man, can drive pissed drunk, exceeding the speed limit to the max of his car, with a cigarette in one hand and the mobile in the other. We are coming from another culture”.

Does the behavior in your company reflect on the safety goals? Can we really change a safety culture*, if we look at the cultural differences of the employees? And what is actually the right Safety Culture to embrace and how to implement it?

Join the event and debate with an interesting mix of speakers who have actively worked with implementing a Safety Culture and get their take on what was the right one for their Organization.

*The term `Safety Culture` first appeared as a part of the investigation report of the Chernobyl disaster in 1986. Since different types of Safety Culture directions have been developed to guide individuals in the right direction. Safety Culture can be defined as a set of beliefs, norms, attitudes, roles, social and technical practices that are concerned with minimizing exposure.
