Safety culture Evolution-Adapted from safeskies, 2001. Aviation safety.
Looking at the graph, i would say in my opinion that most of us are still in 'Reactive' or another famous terms in safety "Fire fighting" phase. We knew that safety is important, but we tend to ignore it and only react if something(incidents) had happen. We often forget that safety is everybody's business and always blame safety officer, employer, government, authorities and others but not ourself. We never care for not taking part in enhancing and promoting safety. As example, how we react and behave when fire drill was conducted?. Others, we wont join safety day activities if there is no token given. In the company, the most people said about me as safety executive, "hey, safety is safety department's job", " safety officer did not perform any job, just makan gaji buta", " safety comes 2nd, dollar and cent come 1st" and many more. Can relate right?
Safety is not about finding cause or person to be blame of when accident happen. It is about finding the root cause and prevent from any same nearmiss or accident to be happen again. Even we cant avoid things to happen, we still can minimize the consequence and impact.
Maybe it is time for us to moved the cheese right? Start with our ownself. Then inspired others. So, stoo talking and blaming. It is time to change and inspired others too.
