||This article presents a safety management system developed and implemented at a Brazilian nuclear research and development facility. It comprises a day-to-day based organizational framework which treats safety as one of the organizational strategic objectives and provides a continuous adaptation of the complex causal inter-relationships which occur between the implementation of new management practices and the organizational safety culture. The system was found to be effective in making safety culture enhancement and continuous organizational improvement possible.
