Culture Change is a marathon not a sprint

What We Do

Culture Change Consultants, Inc. is the pioneer and leader in transforming workplace culture to achieve workplace safety. Led by Steven I. Simon, Ph.D., the “father of safety culture,” our firm has the longest track record and broadest inventory of experience in North America in implementing culture-based strategies that reduce accident rates and associated costs.

A consulting firm with projects with some of the best-managed companies throughout the United States and Canada, our clients are committed to culture change as a long term journey.

Our Core Practice

The principal service we offer is experienced, expert guidance for implementing long-term safety culture change. To do so, we work with leadership to determine and deliver the processes, interventions and tools needed by the organization according to the stage they are in their own safety culture journey, whether at the beginning, midway or close to their destination. Some clients approach us for assistance in initiating corporate-wide safety culture change; others wish to develop the safety culture at a particular site.

Culture Change Is A Marathon Not A Sprint

We see our job as the support team that helps our clients go the distance in cultural transformation.
