"They have been prompt and efficient in meeting our needs and have always been there for us, whether we need one employee or twenty employees."
-Jerry Newell, Personnel Manager at Huron Valley Steel Corporation
Strong safety cultures have the single greatest impact on accident reduction of any process.
Safety cultures consist of shared beliefs, practices, and attitudes that exist at an establishment. In a strong safety culture, everyone feels responsible for safety and pursues it on a daily basis. A company with a strong safety culture typically experiences few at-risk behaviors; consequently they also experience low accident rates, low turn-over, low absenteeism, and high productivity. They are usually companies who are extremely successful by excelling in all aspects of business and excellence. Employer and employee commitment are hallmarks of a true safety culture where safety is an integral part of daily operations.
