Please write a brief reflection on this report, which is a nice summary of the literature, definition and assessment of safety culture and climate. You should include the following:
(1) In your own words, describe what safety culture and climate are. How did this report change what you had previously thought about safety culture and climate? Even if you never heard these terms or considered this before, what did you learn from it?
(2) Is consideration of safety climate or culture important or just a distraction from appropriate controls of hazards in a worksite?
