    Abstract

    Safety culture is a major issue in accident research. A recently finished ph.d.-study has evaluated the symbolic safety culture approach and found four advantages and two disadvantages. These are presented and discussed in this contribution. It is concluded that the approach can be useful in the planning of accident prevention activities if focus is maintained on prevention of accidents and not on changing of the safety culture.
