First Community of Practice Safety Culture and Climate Symposium
Workplaces have changed dramatically in recent times in response to economic pressures, demographic challenges, technological innovations and employment shifts. This brings new occupational health and safety (OHS) challenges for regulators, employers and workers. Hence, there is growing interest among OHS researchers, practitioners and regulators in the constructs of safety culture and safety climate and their relationship with work-related illnesses and injuries. As this interest grows, so too does the literature on how these constructs should be conceptualised and measured. The literature, however, is scant regarding regulatory issues and the role of regulators as agents of influence to the community generally and workplaces specifically. With this symposium, we seek to build understanding of the regulators' perspective of safety culture and safety climate.
