Safety Tip: Analyze, Plan and Improve your Safety Program
The Safety Climate-Safety Management Information System (SC-SMIS)
Contractors and safety professionals play a key role in keeping construction workers safe by understanding their company’s job site safety climate and employing strategies and resources to continuously strengthen it. However, because not all companies have the financial and personnel resources to take these steps, CPWR developed the Safety Climate-Safety Management Information System (SC-SMIS) to help them.
Available to everyone for FREE, the SC-SMIS enables companies and safety professionals to:
  • Measure job site safety climate across eight leading indicators using CPWR’s reliable and valid safety climate assessment tools, the S-CAT or S-CATsc.
  • Download evidence-based safety management policies, procedures, guidelines, and templates from a large resource repository that can be used to strengthen low-scoring indicators. All documents are available in English and Spanish and are formatted in Word, allowing companies to tailor them to specific needs.
  • Develop a plan to put the selected resources into action and keep track of current and completed plans.
