Safety Culture

Steven I. Simon, Ph.D.

An organizational change consultant with a doctorate in psychology from Harvard University, Dr. Simon is the originator of the concept of safety culture. In 1983, he became the first person to use the term safety culture as an approach to improving safety in the workplace. Now, safety culture has grown to become a worldwide movement. Over the past 33 years, he and his team have refined his culture change methodologies through hands-on consulting partnerships with top tier global corporations who, using these methods, have successfully transformed their safety cultures and become world class safety performers. A frequent speaker at International and company safety conferences and a prolific writer, he co-authored the four-book Grassroots Safety Leadership series, a comprehensive guide for implementing organization-wide safety culture change.

The culture change process alone does not bring about the improvements — our people do. Our consultants are all senior change agents, not wet behind the ears, nor cut from the same mold: their experience, like their individual strengths, make it work.
