Get the real truth about your safety culture alignment across your entire organization!



PerceptionPulseTM Engagement Survey

Unlike Optimum’s P3 Safety Culture AnalysisTM, which takes a deep dive into everything (people, plants, and processes), the PerceptionPulseTM Engagement Survey is specifically focused on your people and their perceptions of your organization’s safety culture. Designed to maximize effectiveness, the PerceptionPulseTM Engagement Survey measures alignment cultural perceptions between management, supervisors, and employees across dozens of data points in four key categories:

  • Safety Culture
  • Management & Leadership
  • Perceived Organizational Support
  • Processes & Systems

speak with you about safety?

PerceptionPulse illustrative charts

Survey says:

“10% of respondents disagree/strongly disagree that there is a strong and effective safety culture.”

“17% of the Operations department stated that they do not consistently wear their PPE; while 100% of supervisors/managers stated their direct reports wore their PPE all the time. (This is a perception issue and having supervisors focusing on PPE for a few weeks can help shift norms back to expectations)

“12% of respondents disagree/strongly disagree that resources are readily available to repair or correct safety hazards. (This lessens the amount of reporting you will receive since those employees feel it’s a waste of time to report. Often this is a communication issue where fixes are not being communicated effectively to the entire facility)

“7% of respondents disagree/strongly disagree that they are encouraged to report unsafe work conditions or practices. (This can indicate pushback against reporting from supervisory staff/management)

“32% of [department] disagree/strongly disagree that their supervisor conducts formal observations and provides feedback on my safe/unsafe work practices.”
