Safety performance is driven by leadership in the organization. The leaders translate the company’s safety vision into concrete safety actions and procedures in the facilities and in daily work. Safety vision is integrated to the Key performance indicators, yet the full knowledge of the benefits of safety to the employees and to the company is seldom completely understood. Company’s safety culture is built on the safe working practices, behavior and competence of all employees. HSE statistics shows that still the majority of incidents occur as a consequence of unintentional or intentional violations of safe working practices and not as a consequence of lacking safety procedures. This underlines the importance of behaviors and attitudes in development of safe working culture. Safety leadership is therefore the key to true Safety culture transformation in the organization.
