Cultural Influences

Cultural influences on health and safety attitudes and behaviour in small businesses

For the Health & Safety Executive

The aim of the project was to identify the role of cultural influences on health and safety attitudes and behaviour in small and micro-enterprises and the potential role of business intermediaries in helping disseminate good practice, particularly with respect to ethnic minority businesses. The methodology included a telephone survey of over one thousand small firms and a series of face to face interviews with small business owners/managers, employees, healthy and safety inspectors, business intermediaries and trade union representatives. The report concluded with a number of recommendations, including with respect to the relative roles of the health and safety inspection regime, sector-based trade associations and ethnic minority business intermediaries.
