REGDOC-2.1.2, Safety Culture, establishes requirements and guidance for fostering and assessing safety culture.

The CNSC defines safety culture as the characteristics of the work environment, such as the values, rules, and common understandings that influence workers’ perceptions and attitudes about the importance that the licensee places on safety. A healthy safety culture is a key factor in reducing the likelihood of safety-related events and mitigating their potential impact, and in continually improving safety performance.
