Safety Culture

The critical unlock to meaningful change

Safe Production Culture

To drive meaningful change in Safety performance, organizations need to have a deep understanding of their Safety Culture. Research shows that improvement strategies need to be stage-matched to an organization’s level of current cultural maturity, or they risk having a negative impact.
The challenge is that Safety Culture doesn’t exist in a vacuum. Organizations only have one culture which needs to simultaneously impact Safety, Productivity, and Quality. These dimensions interact with each other and need to be understood together.
Our Safe Production Culture Model, built using years of operational experience and the latest evidence-based research, has been created to bridge the gap between traditional models of safety culture, which often fail to consider the nuances of business and operational safety contexts.
The Safe Production Culture Model provides the most accurate method of interpreting an organization’s culture with the greatest certainty of delivering business outcomes.

Safe Production Culture

Our Safe Production Culture Maturity Model provides the most comprehensive, modern and evidence-based view of cultural maturity. We are the global leaders at providing a holistic view of Safe Production. Our evidence-based approach is the most likely to deliver business outcomes that improve safety while also improving operational performance.

16 Dimensions Assessed

Our Safe Production Culture Model relies on 16 dimensions to fully understand the drivers and improvement levers of Safe Production. These dimensions fall under 4 core categories: STRATEGIC (organizational decision-making & direction), STRUCTURAL (physical, institutional and work environment), INTERPERSONAL (interactions between individuals), and INTRAPERSONAL (thoughts, feelings and internally focused).

Rooted in Safety Ownership: Safety’s Triple-Crown

Our approach is anchored in the deep-rooted importance and interconnectedness of Mindset, Behavior and System to improve the Predictability of Safety results and more importantly to reduce Serious Injuries and Fatalities (SIF) and ultimately drive towards a vision of Zero Harm. We understand that to produce long-term enduring results, organizations need to simultaneously act on all three dimensions. Most approaches focus solely on one of these dimensions and ignore the interconnectedness.

The Most Accurate & Efficient Assessments

While most assessments rely heavily on lengthy perception-based surveys, our research has found these to be highly unreliable and insufficient to inform strategy. Our structured assessments mostly rely on interviews, focus groups, and onsite observations. Short perception surveys fill in the gaps. This has consistently delivered more actionable findings, increased accuracy, and employee buy-in.


Our assessments aren't designed to identify just findings, but rather to develop executable strategies that lead to meaningful change. This has been designed into our methods, models, and most importantly in the composition of our advisory teams. We always combine our deep knowledge of brain science and psychology with expertise in Organizational Change, Strategy Development, and Communication Strategy and most importantly real-world operational expertise. This leads to executable change and real results.
