WSH Ownership

Building ownership of workplace safety and health (WSH) among your employees is a key strategy to sustained WSH improvements.

WSH Institute and Nanyang Technological University (NTU), Singapore, with support from WSH Council, collaborated on a multi-year study to understand how individual, cultural and organisational factors can affect organisational WSH Ownership in Singapore.

WSH Ownership Model

An employee centric model made up of multi-levels of WSH ownership at the individual, cultural and organizational level was conceptualised. It is made up of the following three constructs:

  • Safety climate: Employees’ shared perceptions of policies, procedures and practices relating to safety.
  • Safety citizenship: Behaviours of employees that promote cooperation and helpfulness toward safety in the organisation.
  • Social contract: The voluntary and informal agreement between management, supervisors and workers.
