Culture of Safety

Every lab group, department, Institution, corporation etc has a culture of safety - that is, each has organically formed a set of behaviors that it finds acceptable around safety matters, a set it finds unacceptable, and ways of enforcing safety policies.  The culture may be advanced, or it may be less advanced.  There is a lot of theory and a lot written about this but take a moment now and ask yourself: What is my lab group's safety culture like?  What could we do to make my lab's safety culture even better?  What about in the Department?  At MIT?

Just 2 powerpoint slides may give you some more food for thought.
