A:

Safety culture includes the way in which safety issues are addressed in the workplace. Safety culture includes attitudes, beliefs, perceptions, and values that employees regarding safety. In a broad sense, it involves the way a business does things to ensure the safety of its employees, the general public and the workplace structure.

The Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) found through independent research that developing a safety culture has the greatest impact on reducing incident of injury, illness, or death in the workplace. For this reason developing a safety culture should be one of a company’s core values.
