Supervisory leadership, management commitment, and employee empowerment were among the most critical indicators of a safety climate, according to a workshop report from the Center for Construction Research Training (CPWR) and the National Institute for Occupational Safety and Health (NIOSH). The workshop on which the report is based, Safety Culture and Climate in Construction: Bridging the Gap Between Research and Practice, was held in June 2013 in Washington, D.C. It was organized to help address the lack of consensus on the definition and measurement of safety culture and safety climate. It was decided that safety culture is innate in an organization, while a safety climate expresses a safety culture at a particular job site and at a particular time.
