Understanding Safety Culture and Safety Climate in Construction: Existing Evidence and a Path Forward – A Literature Review

Safety Culture and Safety Climate are hot topics among construction contractors these days as they grapple with how to further reduce injury rates towards achieving the goal of zero injuries. CPWR is currently engaged in gathering and disseminating best practices and tools, as well as identifying research gaps with a number of methods. Our first product of this work is this literature review, which sets out to clarify the distinction between culture and climate and offer clear conceptual definitions and measurement information for both.
