There is a lot of attention on Process Safety Culture. Many implementers see this as an intangible attribute of a company or site. Others see this as something that can be effected directly by the actions of management or by an active program targeted directly at the site culture. This paper shows what we have found by looking at what effects the true “culture” at a site. It shows what Contra Costa Country (one regulator) is doing to encourage establishment and measurement of process safety culture. And it shows that tangible, real, activities within a site are what make safety culture a reality. The paper also reviews the approaches to direct and indirect measurement of process safety culture, and the value of these.
