Sign up to Safety is made up of over 500 locally owned and self-directed campaigns. Even though day to day work may look different in different parts of the country, all our members share a common cause of making care safer.
Helping people where you work understand that they play a vital role in creating a safety culture, and taking steps to find out what a safety culture actually means to each individual (as it may differ) will help you lay the groundwork for a just fair and safe culture for staff and patients.
We have collated some resources and sources of information here to help you. Feel free to quote our blogs and share these resources (although please do attribute them if so).
