Just culture questionnaire for senior managers

To collect productive investigative data, we must promote a culture in which employees are willing to come forward in the interests of system safety. Yet, no one can afford to offer a “blame-free” system in which all conduct has impunity — society rightly requires that some actions warrant disciplinary or enforcement action. It is the balancing of the need to learn from our mistakes, and the need to take disciplinary action, that motivates adoption of a just culture.

Attached is a brief yes/no questionnaire for senior managers assessing the organization’s commitment to a just culture.
