Safety culture and behavioural change

Our risk managers understand that an organisation’s culture is a reliable indicator of safety performance. Their safety culture can be influenced by employees’ beliefs and attitudes about safety and observed through behaviour and performance.

As a leader in safety culture practice our risk management services can measure and benchmark your safety culture to improve performance. Willis Towers Watson can help you with understanding business safety culture through:

  • Use of culture benchmarking and measurement that is informed by the latest best practices.
  • Use of data analytics to provide insights and clear priorities for action.

Many organisations are looking to apply behavioural techniques in addition to the technical and procedural aspects of safety.

Our Risk Managers can assist you in the establishment of bespoke behavioural safety programmes.  Our programme include the analysis and identification of safety culture benchmarks concerning employee perceptions, behaviour and their impact upon business activities.

Using this data and insight we provide a clear roadmap using a range of tailored activities which include training, behavioural incentive programmes and engagement of employees in the organisation’s safety improvement focus.
