Safety Culture

Safety culture encompasses the beliefs and practices of an organization. Rather than being a passive quality emerging on its own, an effective safety culture must be nurtured and reinforced by an organization's leadership. By establishing a proactive and intentional approach to safety, CMV stakeholders can better prevent crashes and reduce their severity when they occur.
