A key part of the Keeping Rail on Track project was to provide a tool to allow organisational assessment and self-reflection. Initially, the RSSB Safety Culture Survey was tested to ascertain whether it had applicability in Australian Rail. Results found that the survey was not appropriate in this context. This report reports on the testing of the Safety Culture Survey and the subsequent development of a new survey, the Organisational Culture, Work Health and Safety (OCWHaS) survey. The OCWHaS is currently undergoing refinement and testing for validity and reliability.
