Safety excellence is a continuous journey. It starts with designing a clear roadmap, providing visibility of where you are today and where you want to be in the future, plus how to get there efficiently by navigating barriers, leveraging opportunities, knowing which indicators to use to track progress and how to develop internal capability to sustain and re-generate success.
Many companies know they need to improve safety but the journey to success is not clear. Even taking the first step can be challenging. The Safety Culture Improvement Blueprint has helped organisations successfully navigate the journey and create sustainably safe workplaces.
Jonah Group’s experts know safety. Not just because they have studied it – but because they have lived it.
In 1999, founders Nada and Robert Wentzel were involved in a horrific accident that left them burned and scarred. The accident led to a life-long inquiry to discover why smart people are capable of such mistakes.
Today, they share that knowledge with leaders from the boardroom to the front line, driving real change in people’s attitudes, behaviour and mindset – and ensuring safety and well-being. In a world where more than 2 million die every year from work-related accidents and disease, safety is Jonah Group’s mission.
Whether psychological or physical health and safety mental health or physical safety, Jonah Group’s experts help people understand, teach people the science of decision-making, risk and human error risk and in doing so, build safety leadership capability to help leaders create and help leaders build sustainable cultures of safety.

Improving safety culture in the workplace requires an integrated approach. Culture gets created in conversation. The conversation is influenced by organisational factors such as metrics, systems, policies, processes, the work environment, team dynamics and leadership. An integrated approach leads to improving safety culture. By fostering a culture that prioritises safety, organisations can significantly reduce the risk of accidents and injuries, enhance employee morale, and ultimately increase productivity.
To help organisations navigate the process of developing a safety culture improvement blueprint that recognises and builds on your organisations past success, and develops future capability, The Jonah Group have developed an evidence-based, proven methodology.

By engaging with this program, organisations can build a solid foundation for a sustainable and robust safety culture, protecting their employees and ensuring long-term success.
A safety culture improvement blueprint is a customised plan that helps create a significant shift in safety culture and performance. It is an integrated approach that considers individual and organisational factors that influence culture and behaviour. It is similar to an architect designing your home. Once you have the design, you can choose to implement it at a pace that is aligned with your business needs and priorities. The absence of a blueprint can result in a piecemeal or Frankenstein approach to improving safety culture.
Improving your safety culture will require a long-term organisational commitment. Otherwise, the initiative will only last as long as the individuals who initially sponsored it. Before engaging in a safety culture improvement initiative, ask three questions: ‘What is our organisation’s readiness for change?’; ‘How important and urgent is it that we change’ and ‘What is the cost of not changing?’. Your first step is to build a case for change. Improving safety culture requires an integrated and organisational commitment. If you don’t have it, consider implementing The Jonah Group’s safety leadership training which will help you achieve improvement and contribute to readying the business for potentially investing in developing a safety culture improvement blueprint.
