Abstract

Deficiencies in organisational performance are often identified as major precursors of accidents. This is why safety-critical industries are increasingly becoming interested in understanding and managing organisational performance. Despite the significance of the organizational factors for system safety, organizational performance is not independent from the technical and economical context. Safety management should focus on the organisation as a whole. Manor-project identified a need to create a model which clarifies what is good safety performance in an organisation and how the hazards related to the technology as well as the management processes contribute to the overall safety culture. A model "Design for Integrated Safety Culture" was created as a basis for practical applications for multiple safety management practices which aim for taking the organisational behaviour into account.
