Organisational safety culture appraisal tool

This page provides an overview of our organisational safety culture appraisal tool (OSCAT).

OSCAT has been designed to assess the safety culture within rail organisations. The tool uses scenario-based interviews to obtain information about an organisations safety culture.

The tool has been developed by Transport Safety Victoria and the NSW Independent Transport Safety Regulator. Rail transport operators are encouraged to consider its use.
