The Culture of Ambulance Safety

When organizations are reminded of the need for safety training — it’s often met with moans and groans. Data has shown that a lack of safety culture in any organization often costs more than just money. Organizations must ask themselves whether the life of their employees is as important as the potential costs of training them.

This course is designed to enhance your ability to identify the importance of implementing safety behaviors within an ambulance organization and making permanent changes that encourage a foundation of safety.

In this course your organization will gain insight into the ways and means of developing a culture of safety by acknowledging the issues of:

  • Professionalism
  • The need for evidence and incentive-based practices,
  • And the importance of making positive behavioral shifts in your organization

At the end of this lesson you will be able to:

  • Identify the components of a safety culture
  • Determine best practices for setting up a culture of safety
  • Develop incentive-based practices for maintaining a safety culture within your organization
