Safety Culture and Safety Climate
The construction industry is increasingly recognizing the importance of creating a strong positive Safety Culture and Safety Climate for reducing worker injury rates as close to zero as possible. Researchers also agree that these concepts and related practices are key to reducing injuries, illnesses, and fatalities on construction worksites. CPWR has developed resources and tools to help contractors improve their safety culture and job site safety climate.
- Worksheets and a Rating Tool to Help You Strengthen Jobsite Safety Climate. This workbook reflects input from construction industry stakeholders, including members of the NORA Construction Sector Council, and contains the Safety Climate Assessment Tool (S-CAT). The S-CAT was developed by researchers at CPWR and Washington State University.
- A Safety Climate Assessment Tool for Small Contractors (S-CAT SC), in English and Spanish, for contractors who are beginning their safety culture/climate journey.
