Embedding a positive safety culture in any organisation is no easy task, but a committed group of member companies are embracing the challenge.

Following the enthusiastic reaction by attendees to the Safety Culture Toolkit Implementation Workshop held in May 2016, a follow-up Workshop was held recently in Brisbane. Representatives from a number of member companies gathered together to provide an update on how their respective companies have progressed in adopting and implementing the 3 Safety Culture Toolkit Guides that were introduced at the initial Workshop in May, and to share their experiences.


Case Studies from three member companies - Pro-Test Well Services, Shamrock Civil and Spiecapag Australia - were presented, providing valuable insights to all who were there. A common theme was the critical importance of senior leadership engagement and buy-in prior to embarking on an organisational change program. The Workshop materials are available to all Safer Together member companies – click here.


The 3 Safety Culture Toolkit Guides are an excellent resource for any company that seeks to improve safety culture. They are available now for all member companies to simply pick up and use:

How to Guide – Develop and Implement a Just Culture Model

How to Guide – Develop and Implement a Safety Behaviour Model

How to Guide – Develop and Implement Life Saving Rules

More Workshops will be held in 2017, which all member companies are strongly encouraged to attend. Supporting E-learning modules will also be developed.
