Outline the factors that might cause the safety culture within an organisation to decline.

Factors that cause the safety culture within an organisation to decline included:

  • Lack of effective communication;
  • The perception of a growing blame culture;
  • Lack of leadership and commitment at senior level;
  • Lack of monitoring or a failure to implement remedial action;



  • Lack of consultation and employee involvement;
  • A generally poor working environment;
  • A high staff turnover leading to lack of continuity and loss of momentum in making safety improvements; and
  • External influences such as a downturn in the economy, leading to job insecurity with the possibility of health and safety being seen as less of a priority.
