This FFI pre-study is a follow-up of our SAFER pre-study Safety Culture For Automation In Transport Companies (https://www.saferresearch.com/projects/safety-culture-automation-transp…).

Safety culture is the prevailing way of thinking and acting at a workplace in relation to risks and safety, i.e. how safety is actually managed. Companies that develop autonomous vehicles and machines and their customers, such as terminals and transport companies, need to gain knowledge about how to implement automated vehicles and at the same time develop a good safety culture that supports sustainability work.

The purpose of the FFI pre-study is to anchor the view of safety culture through workshops. In the study an inventory of survey design will be performed to integrate measurements of sustainability, gender equality with safety culture. The study will also prepare models for the main study that aims to support a process to integrate safety culture in the design and tests of autonomous vehicles.

The pre-study has enabled extensive exchange of knowledge between the partners through workshops about safety at system and organizational levels and has created a readiness for a full application to FFI/Vinnova in December 2021 about safety culture as a factor in the design process of automated vehicles and how to implement them in business and safety culture contexts.
