    Product Information


    In 2012, the UIC Safety Platform held three one-day conferences on the theme of safety culture. These conferences brought together railway operators and representatives of other industries (energy, healthcare, chemicals, aviation) and gave rise to two major questions:

    What are the links and interactions between safety management and safety culture?

    How can we measure safety culture?

    These two questions were explored at greater length by the UIC Human Factors Working Group and a dedicated “Safety Culture” task force.

    This report presents the conclusions of their work.

    Whereas the concept of safety management is nowadays fairly well defined in a number of legal texts, the same cannot be said of the concept of safety culture.

    However, if a company wishes to improve and measure its safety culture, it needs to define its goals and have at its disposal a set of relevant metrics against which to measure its performance.
