The SafetyNET Magazine: Issue 3

Safety Culture

The front page reads: Worker killed in fall. Man dead after being pinned under forklift at workplace. Girder falls on man at Ottawa job site. Safety group probes fatal scaffold collapse. Alberta sees five fatal workplace accidents in one week.

It’s hard not to feel that if greater emphasis was placed on safety at these work sites then the headlines would have read differently. Accordingly, we are dedicating this issue of the SafetyNet magazine to safety culture–the enduring emphasis and value placed on safety by everyone at every organizational level. Our feature article (p.14) describes what a safety culture is, outlines its key benefits, explains the challenges faced when trying to create one, as well as provides tips and strategies for creating a culture of safety within your organization. In this issue you will also find suggestions on how to build a safe driving culture (p.6) as well as strong reasons why it’s important to always wear your PPE (p.9).

If you are looking for ideas for building safety awareness, read what Encana is doing to keep their people focused on safety (p.11). Also, learn how the Alberta Municipal Health and Safety Association is looking to online training to become a safety-focused association (p.13).
