Rijkswaterstaat Safety Impulse ProgramHRO 4/5 safety culture
In brief: The Safety incentive program focuses on the development of a proactive safety culture within Rijkswaterstaat. The board and group council have expressed the ambition to achieve this proactive safety culture level in 2018. In 2014/2015 we performed a baseline measurement and in 2016/2017 a follow-up measurement for all 15 components. A third measurement followed in 2018.
What do we do?The program focused on:  the development and implementation of a safety culture measurement to determine where the various organizational components are located,  increasing safety awareness by exchanging experiences, images, interpretations and beliefs during group interviews,  determining which improvement actions and interventions can best be implemented to stimulate development to a proactive level of culture,  discussing our findings with the management involved and contributing to master classes and  advising the advisors of the Safety Impulse Program.
