Abstract [en]

Although much used, the concept of safety culture is associated with many meanings. In this chapter, it is argued that there are reasons to define safety culture in terms of values and competence related to safety, and to differentiate safety culture from what is here called "safety quality". It is argued that safety culture should be perceived as a relative construct in terms of how the value of safety relates to the manifold of other values simultaneously strived for. Safety culture is discussed in the context of value research (individual and organizational values) and safety quality is discussed in the context of human reliability analysis. Implications for safety management and assessment of safety culture and safety quality are discussed.
