Abstract or Summary
  • Safety culture is a vital part of any organization. It describes how employees, on all levels, perceive safety at the particular organization. Measuring safety culture is fundamental to determining the environment of the organization. Using different measurement methods, including surveys, changes can be made to increase safety and improve safety attitudes. The goal of this study is to create a safety culture survey and compare the survey results to the safety performance data provided from an industrial company, as this comparison has not yet been done. A small sized industrial company was selected for this study and surveys were administered. The Company has provided safety documentation and data that includes plant location, different departments within the plant, injury and near hit frequencies. From this performance data and the survey responses, it was concluded that the survey could be a valid tool for measurement of safety culture to predict safety performance. Future work includes creating a safety data composite index and comparing that index to the safety culture questionnaire index created in this study. Key Words: safety survey, validation
