The Health and Safety Executive (HSE), the UK’s regulator of health and safety, approached us in 2008 to create a new version of their Safety Climate Tool (SCT).
The tool is used by organisations across the globe to assess the safety culture in their organisation as perceived by their employees.
Working closely with the HSE, our Projects Team and Software Development teams built a new framework based on our Snap Survey software to host and deliver the Safety Climate Tool.
The SCT offers digital questionnaire design with real-time analysis, auto-generating reports with built-in recommendations based on the survey results.
Over the years we have continually updated the tool to optimise it for modern technology.

“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.”
Dr Paul Bridges, Business Lead – Health and Safety Executive Commercial
In 2008 we created what was then a unique digitised feedback tool for the HSE to be used in workplaces worldwide.
Working in partnership with the Health and Safety Executive, we developed this digital feedback tool that helps employers to assess health and safety cultures in their organisations. It was the combination of HSE’s domain expertise and Snap Surveys’ software and development experience that made this collaboration such a success.
Over the years we have continually redeveloped the tool to make sure it remains the premier method for assessing Health and Safety cultures in organisations all over the country.
We built the Safety Climate Tool as a customisable questionnaire with personalised reporting.
Employees take a survey on the organisation’s health and safety culture, and then built-in recommendations from HSE are auto-generated based on the feedback received.
X% of employees “strongly agree” that their supervisor values productivity over adherence to health and safety guidelines
Re-train supervisors and announce to all staff that health and safety should be prioritised over productivity where appropriate
Although standard now, many features of the Safety Climate Tool were innovative and brand new to the industry at the time. Here’s the story of how we built the tool and the changes we’ve made to future-proof it over the years.

“As well as the Safety Climate Tool, Snap Surveys also developed the Stress Indicator Tool in a similar way and we are looking to introduce a tool for musculoskeletal disorders soon. ”
In our partnership with the HSE we have built the following tools:
The Stress Indicator Tool benefits organisations looking to combat employee stress in the workplace.
The MSD Tool is for use by those who are assessing an individual completing a task. For example, assessing the risk to an individual required to transfer packages from one location to another in a factory setting.
The assessor can use the MSD tool to assess individuals and suggest improvements to the process and/or the location.
An Organisation-level Report shows trends found in assessments over time, while highlighting any high-risk tasks or locations. It’s highly visual and is intended to be run on tablets or other devices on-the-go, either online or offline.
