Identifying leading safety culture improvement practices to drive innovation to assist in the prevention of workplace injuries

When safety critical organizations develop safety culture improvement strategies they are rarely shared widely outside the organization as there is limited benefit in sharing with others. In contrast to healthcare there is not a tradition of publishing safety improvements in journals or professional magazines. When innovations are shared externally, the description is often sanitized and does not contain then challenges encountered and missteps. In addition, consultancy companies provide a large proportion of the widely shared safety innovations, as they wish to promote their services.
