CORE project partner MTO Safety is currently leading on the project task 5.2, a study investigating the positive and negative aspects of the safety culture in different disaster scenarios, regions, and groups using multiple perspectives.
This is achieved through the implementation of a safety culture survey toolkit developed in previous tasks. Using online surveys, interviews and focus groups, the task will collect data from civilians, public authorities’ representatives, and practitioners in specifically identified areas in Sweden, The United Kingdom, Italy, France, and Germany. To widen participation and ensure high quality of gathered data, survey, interviews, and workshops are conducted in the local languages by native CORE partners.
The online survey will provide quantitative data that will be contrasted with mainly qualitative information from interviews and workshops, to derive hypotheses and explanations for differences that will be found. The in-depth analysis of gathered data will discuss differences among safety culture factors and aspects crossing and comparing data per disaster scenarios, regional areas, and participant groups (civilians, public authorities’ representatives, and practitioners) providing a comprehensive insight of areas of improvement and priorities of interventions to build a positive safety culture in all investigated groups.
The results of the analysis are expected to be available by the end of March 2024.
