Medgate will continue its safety webinar series on October 22nd, tackling the topic of safety culture. The free webinar, led by Shannon Crinklaw CRSP, CHRP, will outline why a positive safety culture is important and give advice on how to quantify culture so that it can be tracked.
Safety culture is a commonly used term that encompasses the values, attitudes and beliefs that employees display towards safety. However, since it is not a specific program or procedure, it can be difficult to pin down, and its elusive nature means that the concept has come under criticism.
Creating a culture of safety within their company is nonetheless a critical concern for safety directors as safety management systems will live or die on the support of employees. When employees have confidence that the safety programs in place are in their best interest, they work towards their successful outcome.
This webinar will define safety culture and provide guidance as to how to recognize and foster a strong safety culture within your organization. It will explain how safety culture can be broken down into main components, the different ways that safety culture can be (indirectly) measured and steps that managers should take to improve safety culture.

It occurs on October 22nd, 2014 from 11.00am – 12.00pm EDT.
