One of the goals of risk management is to put in place a risk-aware and accountable culture that ensures all parties know that they are responsible for all forms of risk management, and understand what their roles are and how they contribute to the overall risk management framework.
How do we establish the right culture?
In the safety world, some visible initiatives to build an aware and accountable culture include posters and other marketing material and the ready availability and training in use of high-visibility safety gear. Initiative such as introducing a safety check or briefing at the start of management or executive meeting is another way of raising awareness.
