Culture of Safety

It Starts at the Top

Organizational culture is a combination of the values, standards, behaviors, and attitudes of its members. The people in your organization are either creating a culture of safety, where individuals are valued and excellent performance is supported at all levels, or a culture where negativity and distrust are spread.

People look to the leader of an organization for cues on how to act, what to say, and how to treat others. The leader has the power to create district environments where adults and students feel and act valued, confident, protected, and hopeful.

Safe Learning Environments

Now, more than ever, safety is top of mind for educators and leaders. As education leaders, we have an obligation to create the conditions for both students and adults to develop and thrive. Establishing a culture of safety is possible through the practice of:

  • Recognizing culture disruptors
  • Reflecting on culture assessment data
  • Reinforcing values and standards
  • Committing to relate, engage, and improve
  • Building lasting trust
