How to Build a Culture of Workplace Safety

Duration: 60 minutes

Workplace Safety is more than a set of rules or procedures.

It’s a commitment. A way of thinking. A culture.

What is a “Culture of Workplace Safety”? 

Simply put, its shared beliefs, values and behaviors that center on employee well-being and physical safety on the job.




When this type of culture exists, safety becomes part of the ethos of the company and is reflected in daily operations, lower injury rates, and healthier employees.

But building this type of culture is no easy task. The first step is a company-wide commitment to safety, from executives and employees alike.

Whether you have workers on construction sites, employees in cubicles or drivers in trucks, this session will show you how any company can create an environment that fosters safety in all aspects of the business.

Workplace Safety expert and Certified Auditor Sal Caccavale will guide you through a step-by-step process that begins with gaining buy-in and ends with dramatically decreased safety incidents and lowered workers’ compensation costs. Plus, he’s show you how to rally your entire organization around your new culture of shared commitment to employee safety.
