On the relation between culture, safety culture and safety management
2014 (English)In: PSAM 2014 - Probabilistic Safety Assessment and Management, 2014Conference paper (Refereed)
Abstract [en]

Safety can be considered an emergent phenomenon, making a systems view imperative if the aim is to evaluate or develop the safety of an entire sociotechnical system. This paper deals with one important component of the systems view - the relation between culture and management. Specifically, we will inspect how the concepts of culture and safety culture can be used in conjunction with the concept of safety management in facilitating a more dynamic systems view on safety. The paper proposes a model of eight cultural archetypes and illustrates how these relate to both safety culture and safety management in organizations.
