  • 8. Expect and Identify Differences
    • Cultural differences go far deeper than language
    • Sometimes a different culture will have a better perspective
    • We don’t always understand that when we export a culture final product is a hybrid of the two cultures involved
    • It is far easier to build a culture that capitalizes on diversity and differences than on homogeny
  • 9. Cast the Vision of the Culture you want to create
    • What are the best elements of each culture?
    • To What do we as an organization aspire?
    • Ensure that your policies reinforce your desired safety culture
  • 10. Be Flexible
    • Some things that seem essential in one culture are not important in other cultures
    • Sometimes we don’t really understand why we do things we’ve always done them
    • Constructive conflict can be used to develop strong bonds and a good cultural foundation
    • Recognize that the off-shore safety culture may differ distinctly from the culture of your domestic locations
  • 11. Don’t Cop Out
    • Don’t blame the other culture for not adopting your rules
    • Actively engage those who behave differently than from the desired state
  • 12. Conclusion
    • Every organization has a Safety Culture
    • Cultures develop to protect their members and govern behavior
    • You must first understand your own culture’s strengths and weaknesses before trying to export it
    • Casting the vision of the culture you want to create is an important step in exporting a safety culture
