“The safety culture of an organisation is the product of individual and group values,
attitudes, perceptions, competencies, and patterns of behaviour that determine the
commitment to, and the style and proficiency of, an organisation’s health and safety
management. Organisations with a positive safety culture are characterised by
communications founded on mutual trust, by shared perceptions of the importance
of safety and by confidence in the efficacy of preventive measures.”
-- U.K. Health and Safety Commission
