"A significant amount of research has been performed to identify the organizational factors that lead to a high level of quality performance. The combination of these factors has been considered a ôquality culture.ö Independent research in the safety field has also been performed to identify those organizational factors that drive safety performance (often referred to as ôsafety climateö). This paper compares these two bodies of research and notes the substantial amount of overlap, with one overriding factor in common: management behavior and responsibility. Those key management behaviors are then identified, which should tend to benefit both quality and safety management."
