We use questionnaires to help create a safety climate baseline and then re-assess every six months. There are two types of questionnaires - one for the vessel personnel and one for the shore-side personnel.

We also use surveys periodically based on the feedback we recieve from the forms provided to the vessel crews. Our staff reviews all submissions, identifies areas of concern and alerts your organiztion of these issues. We follow up with surveys to dig a little deeper into the weak areas to help identify potential problems.

It is important to continuously evaluate your safety climate. Safety climate refers to the psychological characteristics of your employees - how people feel - corresponding the the values, attitudes and perceptions of the employees with regard to safety within the company.

In turn, this helps us with your safety culture which refers to the behavioral aspects - what people do - and the situational aspects - what the company has. Our questionnaires focus on eight safety factors:

  • Leadership and Trust
  • Communication
  • Employee Involvement
  • Learning Culture - The Promotion of Safety
  • Attitude Toward Blame
  • Problem Identification
  • Feedback and Responsiveness
  • Safety Awareness

For your safety program to be effective, the safety climate needs to be supportive of the program. The safety climate includes management, employees, equipment, and environment. We can help you assess your safety performance and improve on it.

We are all in the same boat. If the boat sinks, we all sink!
