Safety culture is a reliable and robust predictor of safe behaviours, injury frequency rates and injury severity rates. Leadership is the single most important driver of organisational culture, setting the cultural norms and expectations that define an organisation.
The best way to improve health and safety performance is to capture and benchmark both lead and lag performance data to continually improve the understanding of an organisation's health and safety risk profile. Global Safety Index members include safety culture and leadership capability as key elements of their safety performance data set.
In addition GSI members not only measure their safety performance, but also benchmark their performance over time and against other organisations.
