Used by itself or in conjunction with our other safety culture assessment tools, the survey can identify what the organization is doing well and what the organization needs to improve upon in order to achieve a Total Safety Culture. The survey can be used to see differences in departments, sites, or regions. Up to 3 different demographic categories can be used (for example, a common set of demographic categories is Department, Organizational Level, and Shift).
The revised SCS is available in Arabic, Chinese-Simple, Czech, Dutch, English, French, German, Hebrew, Hungarian, Iliciano, Indonesian-Bahase, Italian, Japanese, Korean, Malaysian, Polish, Portuguese, Romanian, Russian, Spanish, Thai, and Turkish. Additional languages can be developed as needed. An older version of the survey is available in 12 languages (English, Quebec French, Euro French, Mexican Spanish, European Spanish, German, Portuguese, Dutch, Afrikaans, Icelandic, Ukrainian, and Tswana).
SPS works with organizational personnel to determine the appropriate demographic information to gather. The survey takes approximately 30 minutes to complete. It is recommended that all employees have the opportunity to complete the survey; however, an acceptable minimum is generally 30% of the population, given the sample is a randomly-selected, representative sample.
Results for approximately half of the new survey items are compared to a "norm" made up of the results of more than 200,000 respondents from hundreds of companies who have completed the survey in the past. Norms for newer survey items will be added as the database grows.
Survey administration is available in three ways. First, SPS can provide hardcopy survey forms and instructions to be used by organizational personnel in administering the survey to employees. With this option, SPS recommends the survey be administered in a group setting during regular working hours. Second, SPS can administer the survey to participants in groups of up to 30 using Option Finder, a system in which participants use hand-held polling devices to enter their responses to survey questions. The group receives immediate feedback of the results on each item, and can discuss items before proceeding to the next question. Finally, the survey can be completed on-line. SPS will provide the link to the organization’s unique, secure website containing its customized survey.
