Values and Practices – Can you have one without the other?
Implementing good safety practices is an essential, and practical, route to developing a good organisational culture, argues Peter Wilkinson in this Insight paper.
“Much of my work as a safety practitioner tends to focus on improving critical controls intended to reduce the probability or consequences of major accidents. ‘Critical controls’ is just another way of saying those important organisational practices that reduce the chance of a risk occurring.”
