On today’s episode we fulfill an earlier promise we made on a past episode and discuss the relationship between safety climate and injury.
We frame our conversation around the paper, Safety Climate and Injuries: An Examination of Theoretical and Empirical Relationships.
Tune in to hear us talk about retrospective studies, the perception of safety vs. actual safety, and the influence of injuries on safety climate.
- Retrospective studies.
- Organizational and psychological safety climates.
- Perception of safety and actual safety.
- Designing research to answer your question.
- Influence of injuries on safety climate.
- Practical takeaways
“People who say that they think their company cares about safety, those people generally are safer.”
“Most safety climate research assumes that safety climate is a good measure, because it is a predictor of injuries.”
“Not enough of these studies measure the strength of climate.”
