Safety culture can be described as our:
1. Values (what is important)
2. Behaviours (the way we do things around here)
3. Beliefs (how things work).
Safety culture has been shown to be a key predictor of safety performance in several industries. It is the difference between a safe organisation and an accident waiting to happen. Thinking and talking about our safety culture is essential for us to understand what we do well, and where we need to improve.
NHS Education for Scotland (NES) has adapted these safety culture discussion cards (designed by EUROCONTROL) to help us to do this. Follow the link below to download the cards.
