Organizations can find themselves running on “autopilot”, shaping or reshaping behaviors and beliefs, often, in a negative way and without even knowing it. This practice increases the potential for organizational breakdowns, leading to a dysfunctional safety management system. When new situations arise, opportunities for improvement go unnoticed, leadership roles are not clear and employees remain confused, fostering ineffective communication. Organizational safety cultures struggle to hit maximum potential, because they are working from a position of minimal input.
