Study confirms the importance of safety as well as the responsibility of both individuals and organizations to implement it


EVERETT, Wash.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Workplace safety is something everyone agrees is important, yet there can be significant differences in the perception of how adequate safety measures are and the optimum amount of emphasis they are given in the organization. Fluke Corporation’s third annual Electrical Safety Survey seeks to identify trends in sentiment and perception of workplace safety, including responsibilities, culture, training, and the role of technology.

The survey found that sentiment about who is most responsible for safety has remained the same over the past three years — workers being ranked most responsible — yet there is a feeling among many of the respondents that organizations can be doing a better job in creating a safe work environment. Despite 98 percent of respondents agreeing (strongly agree/agree) that a strong culture of safety is important in keeping workers safe, only 37 percent agree that most companies have one.

“I think safety is something companies focus on but miss the small details, relying on good trustworthy tools can help improve safety but training and proper PPE will further solidify the basics and put the worker at most responsibility for their safety as well as others,” said an 18-24-year-old respondent from Pennsylvania.

“Gaining buy-in for a safety culture has proven to be the most challenging piece, but at the same time it is the most important part,” says a 35-44-year-old respondent from Minnesota.

Nearly all respondents (95 percent) believe more can be done to make their workplaces safer and 56 percent of workers have ideas on how to make the industry safer.

“A robust culture of safety is vital for organizations who truly want to keep their workers safe, yet many workers find the emphasis is not always adequate to do the job,” said Heather Rasmussen, global content manager for Fluke Corporation. “This year’s survey reinforces how important safety is to workers and how they look to their supervisors and managers to set the tone and provide the tools and training to make that happen.”

The survey also reveals the perception of the use or lack of use of personal protective equipment, participation in safety training and classes, and the role innovative tools and technologies play in improving workplace safety.
