Safe­ty

Safe­ty Culture

Safe­ty cul­ture deter­mines how we make deci­sions, feel, and think; and most impor­tant­ly, how we act. A safe­ty cul­ture is com­posed of both vis­i­ble and invis­i­ble com­po­nents. Poli­cies that employ the prop­er use of safe­ty rules, and include main­tain­ing safe­ty sta­tis­tics and con­duct­ing safe­ty meet­ings, are what make up the vis­i­ble safe­ty cul­ture. This rep­re­sents only a small per­cent­age of how we con­duct our­selves.

The invis­i­ble cul­ture that exists in our indus­try makes up the major­i­ty of the individual’s behav­ior and con­sists of norms and basic assump­tions we all have about safe­ty. These are the assumed rules or beliefs every­one fol­lows with­out ques­tion. When employ­ees fail to fol­low estab­lished rules or pro­ce­dures, they are fol­low­ing the invis­i­ble cul­ture, or unwrit­ten rules, that under­mine pol­i­cy but are rein­forced by the norms of peer groups.

At Syblon Reid, we rec­og­nize that a strong Safe­ty Cul­ture can­not be tak­en for grant­ed. Our entire man­age­ment team and super­vi­so­ry staff are con­stant­ly vig­i­lant to ensure each and every employ­ee under­stands that, not only do we care about their safe­ty and well-being, we also all need to act in a way that pro­motes safe­ty as our high­est pri­or­i­ty; by clos­ing the gap between vis­i­ble and invis­i­ble safe­ty cul­ture. An active Safe­ty Com­mit­tee, rep­re­sent­ing all lev­els of employ­ees, is a key com­po­nent of Syblon Reid’s Safe­ty Program.
