Safety Climate Tool has been carefully designed by scientists to assess the attitudes of individuals within an organisation towards health and safety issues.

The Safety Climate Tool delivers an objective measure of your safety culture - the 'way things are done' in your organisation when it comes to health and safety. This is a significant starting point for any organisation to continually improve and raise standards.

Safety climate and safety culture - Safety climate survey

Safety climate is the perceived value placed on safety in an organisation at a particular point in time. These perceptions and beliefs can be influenced by the attitudes, values, opinions and actions of other workers in an organisation, and can change with time and circumstance.

Using a simple, online questionnaire, the Safety Climate Tool explores your employees' attitudes and perceptions in key areas of health and safety, while guaranteeing anonymity.

Once the survey has been completed, it generates a comprehensive report and provides guidance that will help improve the organisation's safety culture.
