A key factor common in organisations with poor safety performance is a culture of blame or avoidance. In organisations with a blame-based culture, the focus is often on finding someone or something to blame when targets are not achieved or an incident occurs. This leads to worker behaviour that is fuelled by a fear of getting in trouble, creates an avoidance of responsibility and results in compliance only when workers feel they have to.
In this webinar, we’ll explore the corporate messages and leadership styles and behaviours that contribute to creating a culture of blame. We’ll share strategies and techniques that can be used to turn the tide towards a culture of ownership that leads to improved safety outcomes.
