The Center for Health and Safety Culture has spent the last year evaluating its methods and mission to better serve communities and organizations. Specifically, our research and training has expanded beyond Positive Community Norms (PCN) to consider a broader set of cultural influences in addition to norms including values, beliefs, and attitudes.
This broadly operating model to measure, analyze, and transform culture is called “Positive Culture Framework” (PCF). This framework is grounded in validated psychological models of human social behaviors related to health and safety.
To support these changes we have a new center Director with a multi-disciplinary background in social and cognitive psychology and systems engineering: Professor Nicholas J. Ward. Professor Ward is an international leader in the measurement and application of culture-based strategies to improve traffic safety.
