Building a Proactive Safety Culture (SFL03)

Have you ever found yourself dealing with an accident at work and thinking there must have been some way to stop it happening in the 1st place? A reactive safety culture means accidents, incidents, and issues are only dealt with when it’s too late to prevent them. But is there a more effective way of dealing with safety issues?

A proactive safety culture is all about keeping 1 step ahead. If you can resolve an issue early, it’s less likely to lead to a safety mishap later.
