Executive Summary

A lack of engagement creates disconnected workers who are increasingly vulnerable to errors. These issues can develop into severe incidents that harm workers’ safety. To prevent this, firms are trying to build a safety culture, where each employee understands the importance of safety and engages in the relevant, role-specific processes to support it. This helps organizations focus on small issues and eradicate them before they become major incidents. This report highlights how consistent and clear engagement across a firm can help create a positive safety culture.
