It Starts with Culture.
A Safety Culture Assessment is voluntary, non-punitive and confidential.
The Safety Culture Assessment (SCA) process takes place onsite and includes an online survey of staff, in-person interviews with management and craft employees and observations of the railroad’s daily practices.
At the conclusion of the SCA, the railroad will receive information about Findings and Opportunities for improvement that are aligned with the Ten Core Elements of a Strong Safety Culture, as adopted by the DOT Safety Council.
The SLSI offers Technical Assistance to railroads that are looking to implement changes with the goal of strengthening their safety culture. Examples of assistance include activities such as designing a Safety Action Plan, engaging in strategies to improve safety communications, and offering assistance in building the structure and functionality of a Safety Committee.
A Follow-up Assessment may be requested by railroads that participated in an initial Safety Culture Assessment to provide them with the opportunity to re-examine their safety culture and identify new opportunities for improvement.
