Content: Safety climate is defined as employees’ shared perceptions of safety policies, procedures, practices and company’s “true” priority of safety. Scientific literature has shown that safety climate is among the strongest predictors of safety behaviors and of injury data in workgroups. Safety climate identifies employees’ perceptions (i.e. as seen through the eyes of employees) about the real or true priority of safety as opposed to its formally espoused priority by company management. This talk will address three issues: (1) reviewing the nature and importance of safety culture and climate, (2) describing the Liberty Mutual Research Institute for Safety (LMRIS) research projects on safety climate, and (3) discussing the future plans of safety climate research at LMRIS. Through the framework of sociotechnical systems theory, macro‐ergonomics seeks to design fully “harmonized” work systems to improve organizational performance and effectiveness. The work systems approach allows the LMRIS safety climate research team to consider intervention strategies within a holistic and systems context.
