Culture of Safety

The Culture of Safety is perhaps surprisingly a new concept to some quarters of U.S. EMS. This is nationally apparent by a stream of Line of Duty Deaths (LODD) and devastating vehicle accidents that result in well publicized photos of ambulances splayed like bananas after impacts with both moving and static objects. An environment of cultured safety seeks to establish the root cause of these issues then put techniques, practices, procedures and philosophy in place to create a safe environment for all.
