What is a Safety Culture?

Every business has its own definition when asked, “what is a safety culture? So, I sat down with someone who helps build strong safety cultures every day. Marianne Jozsi is the VP of Risk Management here at Worthy Insurance. She trains and communicates the best risk management practices to clients while reporting and tracking all claims. Proceeding are a few comments from Marianne when I asked, “What is a safety culture?” 


What is a safety culture? 

“A safety culture is present in every organization. A business has a positive safety culture when they have an environment where every single person within their operation feels accountable to safety standards, but also feels empowered to create an environment where everybody is as safe as possible.” 


Who participates in a safety culture? 

“A positive safety culture needs to be driven from the top level of an organization, because if it doesn’t go to the top, then you’re not getting anywhere. Your leaders need to have a passion for keeping all of the members of their team safe so that attitude can trickle down to your floor-level employees who are doing the jobs where there’s the highest risk of injury. In our long-term care facilities, that will be your CNA’s, your cooks, etc. In manufacturing, that’s anyone who works on your floor or on your dock shipping and receiving. It’s hard to generalize because of the specific operations for each business, but a good leader will be able to identify which areas of their operation need special attention in building a safety culture. Participants of a safety culture must start at the tippy top of the organization but the most impactful participants can sometimes be those impassioned team members who are working on the floor. “ 


Our goal at Worthy Insurance is to help our clients have the coverage and support they need. Also, guiding and giving support, so businesses can effectively create and maintain a positive safety culture. A safety culture that not only benefits the company but the employees too. Minimizing risks through specific practices and procedures that Marianne can detect personally on her regular walkthroughs of our client’s buildings.
