Safety Culture Development


Safety Culture Development Course

2 Days

A healthy safety culture is the heart of an organization's Safety Management System (SMS). Yet, many companies are not sure how to develop and/or sustain a healthy safety culture. It's been well documented that poor safety cultures have led to disastrous results, not only in aviation, but in other types of high-risk industries as well. This course provides the necessary foundation to help your company not only understand what safety culture is, but, more importantly, how to change and continuously improve your culture over time!

This course also includes administration of TACG's proprietary Safety Culture Assessment Tool (SCAT) survey. The survey is administered electronically before the course date. As a baseline measure, we analyze the data and present the SCAT results to you as part of your course. This provides your company with a current snapshot of your safety culture with recommendations for improvement, as well as reinforcement of strong points.

As an option, after a period of 12 months, we recommend conducting another SCAT survey to re-assess the safety culture as a result of the changes that were implemented after the course.
