[en] A review of the literature about safety culture studies returns a lot of results. Nevertheless, these studies mainly focus on one sector at the same time. Studies that compare organisations coming from different sectors are really rare. Moreover, such studies in universities are also really rare.
More and more, universities are considered as enterprises like others, facing the same risks and having to maximise their performance in order to attract students and workers. Therefore, universities also have to take into account these risks, and to engage in security practices. This makes universities become a really interesting field for safety culture studies. Our study is thus dedicated to the analysis of the safety culture of 10 different laboratories that are dependent on the university.
The study aims at describing the safety culture in these 10 different laboratories, which are coming from 6 different sectors. Our final objective is to determine whether or not this sector is a variable that can influence the safety culture. To do this, we realised a survey that involved 106 people from these laboratories. This survey evaluates the laboratories on different dimensions, such as safety climate and workers behaviours.
The first chapters of this study describe the different dimensions on which we based our survey. These are related to the definition of the safety culture we decided to follow, the one that was given by Cooper (2000). Once these theoretical bases are in place, we describe the methodology we decided to follow to realize the study and the three different methods we use in order to analyse the results. Finally, a large part is dedicated to this analysis of the results, and to conclude about whether or not sectors are a variable that can influence the safety culture.
