Statewide Safety Perception Survey
In the Spring of 2017, the Department of Administration's Risk Management Division rolled out a five-year employee safety perception survey project. The main purpose of the project is to assess the statewide safety culture and identify improvement opportunities. Studies have shown that improving an organization's safety culture will result in fewer injuries.
The first of the three surveys occurred in 2017 and established baseline safety culture scores. The second survey will be administered in spring 2019 with the final survey occurring in 2021. The results from the first survey provided agencies with valuable information they are using to improve processes, develop training and improve communication.
The survey results will be available in summer 2019. Specific agency reports and report-out sessions will be available to agencies and entities at an additional cost.
A Statewide Safety Perception Survey was conducted during the 4th quarter of FY17. The survey was conducted to better understand the safety perceptions of our workforce and to create leading safety performance indicators correlated to injury reduction. The survey is expected to be conducted again during FY19 and FY21.
