Abstract: While safety culture in the laboratory setting is well described in several resources (for example, the National Academies publications Prudent Practices and Safe Science), its use in the larger culture is less clear. This paper will report on how mass media across the globe discuss safety culture, both as a management approach and at the practical level. The information provided will be based on about 9 months worth of review of mainstream media stories that mention “safety culture”.
