Creating a positive health and safety culture can be a challenge. One of the big contributors to reducing risk or injury is to create a culture where by the whole workplace has the same shared values. 


According to IOSH there are three key elements to creating a positive safety culture:

  1. There should be working practices and rules in place for effectively controlling hazards
  2. A positive attitude towards risk management and compliance with the control processes
  3. The capacity to learn from accidents, near misses and safety performance indicators and bring about continual improvement.

These key elements will only work if management lead from the front and encourage discussions on safety in the workplace. IOSH also states that the organisation needs to 'learn from what’s happening in the workplace. Only by analysing accidents and near misses is it possible to develop suitable improvements to safe working practices'.
