What is a safety culture? A workplace culture that promotes the safety places a high level of importance on the beliefs, values and attitudes towards safety issues within the organisation. These values must be shared by most staff and put into practice on a daily basis – when this happens, making safety a priority becomes second nature.

Anyone who has worked in a highly regulated or high-risk environment will know that safety is much more than ticking a box or following a procedure. When the attitude towards safety can be characterised as ‘the way things are done around here’ a positive safety culture will build which can result in improved safety practices and all-round performance.

What You'll Learn

  • Methods for identifying hazards and situations that may cause injury or illness;
  • Tool and practices to help embed the importance of safety awareness in your workplace;
  • Who’s responsible for safety and monitoring safe practices;
  • How to develop active contribution from employees to safety practice, policy and procedure;
  • Identifying risks, risk ratings and risk controls;
  • Incident reporting;
  • Responding to emergencies;
  • Safety signs, symbols and protections.

This course is ideal for

  • Safety professionals who want to promote greater awareness and acceptance of safety in their workplace;
  • Anyone working in a high-risk industry who wants to gain a general understanding of safety;
  • Team leaders or workers exposed to potential hazards who want to improve their own knowledge of safety practices.
