Course overview

RSSB has undertaken research and created guidance on fair culture and safety culture for the rail industry. To be effective, organisations must promote learning from mistakes, rather than focus on blame. In a fair culture, employees know that safety is highly valued in the organisation, and continually look to improve performance.

Developing a fair culture helps individuals to talk more openly about their performance. This helps organisations to see errors, mistakes and violations as learning opportunities that can be used to improve safety and performance.
