Safety Culture Ladder

Since October 2021 Octatube is successfully certified for the Safety Culture Ladder (SCL), also known as Safety Ladder, step 3. The SCL is a method to measure safety awareness, attitude and behaviour in companies. The aim is to reduce the number of unsafe situations, resulting in a decrease in incidents. With an emphasis on company culture, the SCL highlights other aspects than systems such as ISO 45001 and VCA. Naturally, procedures and documents are checked, but the focus is even more on interviews with employees to get a feeling for their safety awareness, attitude and behaviour. The SCL ladder consists of five steps. The higher the safety awareness, the higher the step.

Through the certification process, we have grown as a company and become more aware of our Health & Safety policy, especially in terms of culture and awareness. We now have a complete H&S system, in which all company certifications (VCA**, ISO 45001 and SCL) ratify each other.
