How Does Safety Culture Affect Your Dealership?

Without a successful safety culture, it is difficult for dealerships to be profitable. Accidents and injuries increase costs dealership wide, affecting insurance rates, employee retention, and more. But before you can implement a successful safety culture, you have to know what it is.In simple terms, safety culture refers to groups that prioritize safety through consistent beliefs and patterns of behavior.

  • The best safety cultures focus upon good communication, consistent activities surrounding safety, and effective and steady training. A true safety culture exists when all of a dealership’s employees work as a team to:
  • Maintain awareness of safety and health issues
  • Quickly report any incidents A
  • nticipate risks in order to prevent accidents before they occur

Do you know if you have a safety culture at your dealership? If you’re asking yourself that now, then you probably don’t. If that is the case, contact KPA at info@kpaonline.com to get started immediately. To confirm if your safety culture is adequate, consider the following checklist:

  • Safety is top-of-mind for everyone
  • Employees at all levels in the dealership feel responsible for safety
  • There’s open communication about safety issues
  • Safety is valued – employees and management believe it supports profitability and morale
  • Efforts to maintain safety are organized and consistent
  • Effective programs ensure that everyone “walks the talk”

Do you have questions? Do you want to strengthen your safety culture? Don’t be afraid to call your KPA Environment and Safety engineer. If you’re not a client, call 866-356-1735 to find out how we can help.
