Safety Climate Assessment Tool (S-CAT)
The Safety Climate Assessment Tool (S-CAT) is a free tool available to any construction contractor or safety and health professional who wants tailored and actionable information to improve the safety of every worker at every job-site. The S-CAT allows a company to obtain information regarding employee safety perceptions. These safety perceptions provide a snapshot view of the company’s jobsite safety climate. A strong jobsite safety climate has a positive impact on a company’s overall safety culture, just as a strong safety culture positively affects jobsite safety climate.
Feedback is provided on 8 leading indicators of safety climate that have been shown to be predictive of employee injury rates. With just a few clicks, company employees or an individual can answer questions about each indicator and then receive a personalized feedback report with benchmarking and comparative information indicating their current areas of success and ideas for making improvements. Companies can have their employees take the S-CAT periodically to track their progress at improving their jobsite safety climate.
