Reporting results from OSCAT

There is a range of ways to communicate the outcome of the safety culture appraisal to meet the needs of different audiences.

A report incorporating the results of the appraisal and recommendations for improvements should be provided. Presentations could also be delivered to key groups to communicate the results.

A report could include the following sections as appropriate:

  • Background
  • Method
  • Materials
  • Data collection
  • Rating scale
  • Results
  • Conclusions
  • Recommendations

The report template document can be used and tailored to meet the needs of the organisation. This is available to download in Word format below. 

The person responsible for interpreting the findings and writing the report should have a good understanding about the impact of organisational culture on safety and how culture can be improved. This will ensure that any recommendations made will be effective in improving culture and, in turn, reducing the risk of incidents and accidents.
