Description: 

Safety is a central issue during the planning and implementation of high-speed railways. Top management has a role to play in improving the safety culture of organizations. The authors conduct an assessment of the safety cultures at two railway companies, illustrate the importance of sustained efforts from top leaders in developing a positive safety culture, and conclude that the dynamics related to safety culture are also affected by other components in the system.
