The Certification Scheme Safety Culture Ladder contains requirements (which must be met by a company), criteria (against which the standard is being tested), auditor directives (what is being reviewed) and scores (how will meeting the criteria be valued).
The Safety Culture Ladder divides safety awareness and safety behaviour over 5 steps. The more responsibility about, reflection on and investment in safety, the higher the score. The score is determined on the basis of 18 company characteristics.
The Manual Safety Culture Ladder is the document that provides the framework for certification on the safety culture ladder. It contains all necessary formal information about the certification process.
