Abstract


The paper deals with safety culture evaluation in Slovak companies. Taking into account the conditions of enterprises in the Slovak Republic, specific research methodology has been developed for the research of the safety culture status in engineering companies. The questionnaire survey method was used. With regard to the scope of research, 10 determinants was defined, which form the basis for the assessment of safety culture elements. In assessing the level of each of the 10 safety culture determinants, the relationship between enterprise size (small, medium, large) and the points assigned to each determinant was defined. The research result is comprehensively evaluated using a point graph. The discussion shows parts that were evaluated the highest or lowest and outlines suggested approaches to improve the current state.
