The Health and Safety Executive (HSE) is Britain’s national regulator for workplace health and safety. They are a UK government agency responsible for the encouragement, regulation and enforcement of workplace health, safety, and welfare, as well as research into occupational risks in Great Britain.

The Challenge

We were asked to develop an enhanced digital solution for their paper-based survey to help measure safety culture within organisations. Organisations would complete the survey to receive instant analysis and evidence-based suggestions for improvement.

The Solution

We designed a customisable questionnaire and personalised report, which is available online and offline.

The Safety Climate Tool

The Safety Climate Tool delivers an objective measure of safety culture within organisations, and it can be used to support ISO 45001 accreditation.

Designed around the 8 key safety culture factors, the simple, online questionnaire assesses employee attitudes and perceptions, while guaranteeing anonymity. Once the survey is completed it generates a comprehensive report, providing guidance that will help improve the organisation’s safety culture.

The detailed report includes:

  • Identification of high / low performing areas.
  • Recommendations for improvement for the lowest performing areas.
  • Benchmarks to industry standards.

“We approached Snap Surveys because we felt they could provide a robust platform for the Safety Climate Tool with the flexibility to cost effectively tailor the software to our specific requirements. They have also developed the Stress Indicator Tool in a similar way and we are looking to introduce a tool for musculoskeletal disorders soon.”
Dr Paul Bridges, Business Lead – Health and Safety Executive Commercial

The Outcome

Over the years we have worked with HSE to develop the tool and add various features based on customer feedback, such as language templates and industry benchmarking data. To date, over 300 organisations in the UK and overseas, from a range of sectors, are proactively using the Safety Climate Tool to measure and improve their safety culture.
