Process Safety Culture – Risk Based Process Safety: Pillar 1

Pillar 1 (Risk Based Process Safety) – Process Safety Culture

Process safety culture has been defined as, “the combination of group values and behaviours that determine the manner in which Process Safety is managed“.  

More succinct definitions include, How we do things around here,” “What we expect here,” and “How we behave when no one is watching”.

Efforts to nurture and sustain a sound Process Safety culture must occur everywhere, from the boardroom to the production floor.  

The leadership of an organisation has the primary responsibility for identifying the need for, and fostering, cultural change and for sustaining a sound culture once it is established.
