Title Evaluating a safety culture campaign: Some lessons from a Norwegian case
Bibliographic information June 2010, Vol.48, No.5, p.651-659. Illus. 40 ref.
Abstract This evaluation of a safety culture campaign in the Norwegian offshore industry focussed on three groups: onshore managers, crane operators and process operators. They were asked during interviews whether the safety culture campaign contributed to new safety cultures related to care, why or why not, and what could be learned from this. The study indicates that two of the groups developed new safety cultures that sensitize them to new hazards, and motivate and legitimize new preventive practices. Lessons that can be learned from the study are discussed.
