A Case Study of the Health and Safety Culture within Cardiff School of Sport, examining the organisation’s approach to the management of health and safety and the deployment of processes and procedures. The accepted five priorities in achieving a positive culture were considered. Purposive sampling was adopted to identify appropriate subjects for the research. Semi-structured interviews (n=4) and content analysis were used to interpret the data. Areas for improvement identified were (a) communication, (b) importance to move away from a risk averse society, and (c) the reporting analysis of near-misses. The organisation should use a range of approaches [digital communication, group discussions, and suitable training] to improve employees’ understanding and knowledge, leading to the creation of a sustainable and effective health and safety culture.
