Safety as a Core Value

How are you ensuring safety and health are a core value of your organization? The Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) is initiating an effort to discover how safety and health programs, including emergency preparedness and pandemic planning, connect with a positive workplace safety culture and explore how to strengthen organizational culture to be inclusive of safety. In addition, this effort aims to identify barriers and challenges for improving workplace safety and health culture (e.g., financial, social, behavioral) and for reducing workplace injuries, illnesses, and fatalities. It also will help determine the best way to promote workplace safety culture.

Safety as a Core Workplace Value Listening Sessions

To help shape this effort, a series of Learning Conversations will provide a forum for OSHA to collect insights from workplaces. The purpose of these Learning Conversations is for national and regional OSHA staff to engage with area businesses and local stakeholders to identify needs, challenges, and best practices for adoption of safety and health as a core workplace value. Regional leaders and conversation moderators will be able to describe how safety is a component of workplace culture and how that relates to corresponding levels of local workplace safety and health performance.

Registration for the National Listening Conversation is now open! The conversation will be held on Wednesday, June 14, 2023 at the US Department of Labor, Francis Perkins Building in Washington, DC.
