tendency towards inter -dependence as seen in an emerging team approach to safety responsibility that is developing at certain sites. However there is also a strong reliance on punitive measures to enforce operating discipline which is often necessary but has the potential of keeping the culture at the dependent level if the organisation does not find a more mature approach to progressive motivation.
