We are seeking feedback on an organisation’s experience of assessing and improving Safety Culture. We have produced a short questionnaire: https://www.surveymonkey.co.uk/r/SCWGsurvey and would ask you to spare a few minutes to complete it.

The aim of the survey is to help organisations understand how to assess and improve Safety Culture. We will be analysing responses and will share findings anonymously through the website.
