An effective safety culture is one in which people do the right thing all the time, even when no one is watching.

To drive this level of performance, factors like management beliefs, values, myths and company policies and procedures must align and be continually reinforced.

Responding to unsafe behaviour with corrective actions and activities like training and communication that build employee involvement and buy-in are powerful influences that strengthen an organisation’s safety culture.

Working with our partner insync surveys research consulting, HSRC can be provide an innovative Safety Culture and Engagement Survey specifically tailored for the aviation industry.

The survey has been designed to assist an organisation’s approach to safety by establishing a benchmark for how your workforce views safety.

The results from the survey will allow you to better understand your workplace safety culture from which you will be able to develop strategies to improve safety performance.

How to better understand workplace safety culture?

Analysing workplace health and safety incidents and implementing preventive actions is essential, but better understanding the safety culture within your organisation provides information you can use to create a culture that will help prevent those incidents from occuring.

By examining workplace health and safety culture, Insync delivers specific, actionable information about the safety culture in different teams and demographics right across your organisation. By improving your safety culture your number of safety incidents will reduce.

Being able to see safety culture through your workforce’s eyes is powerful!

Insync’s Safety Culture and Engagement Survey provides senior managers with a clear and easy to understand report. It shows the safety culture in each area of your organisation as perceived by your staff. This data is used to help identify problems and tailor solutions in a measured and targeted fashion, as well as understanding your pockets of excellence to be celebrated and emulated across the organisation.

The Safety Culture and Engagement Survey report and subsequent action plans will also provide auditable evidence that your organisation has proactively sought to understand where issues may exist and provide a framework for continuous improvement. This evidence can be vital in the event of a workplace health and safety incident investigation.

Workplace safety factors

Insync’s Safety Culture and Engagement Survey framework is primarily measured by four drivers identified as having the strongest impact on safety outcomes.

  • Response to Safety – how well safety risks are identified and addressed.
  • Continuous Improvement – the level of commitment to best practice and safety evaluation.
  • Safety Leadership – encouragement from management and behavioural role-modelling.
  • Psychological Safety – how safe staff feel in their day-to-day roles.

Based on extensive research and Insync’s employee survey experience, we know there are strong links between engaged workforces and safe workplaces, therefore employee engagement is included as an additional driver within the survey.

Safety Culture and Engagement Survey structure

The Safety Culture and Engagement  Survey, an employee survey, has been designed to be concise and accurate for actionable insights.

The survey consists of 34 questions that Insync’s own factor analysis has proven to be the closest predictive drivers of workplace safety. Also included are 10 employee engagement factors from Insync’s Employee Engagement Survey.
