EMS Safety Culture Assessment

sops6Developed in conjunction with the National Registry of EMTs, our Safety Culture Assessment is designed specifically for EMS. The survey questions were tested extensively to ensure they are relevant and appropriate. The National Registry of EMTs surveyed its registrants and received more than 32,000 responses that contributed to the psychometric testing and validation.

Our assessment provides a measurable snapshot in time of your agency’s culture. Changing your organization’s culture is a significant undertaking and an important first step is knowing the current state, and having a reliable way of measuring any changes over time.


Any organization. Anywhere. No matter where you are located, or how geographically diverse your organization may be, we have the experience to support your needs.

Relax! We’ve got this. The Center for Patient Safety truly partners with your organization throughout the assessment process. The $895 cost includes a consult with us to walk you through results across multiple categories, answer any questions you have, and provide counsel on how to present those findings to your team. We show you your strengths, your weaknesses, how you compare to others, and how you can prioritize next steps. The safety culture assessment process is more than just administering a survey.

We are with you. We walk with you through the entire process. You can be as involved as you want to be. Our goal is for you to have a successful assessment by getting the correct information with actionable insight to make change.

Pick your own dates. You get to choose when your survey starts and ends. We’ll extend your survey if needed to make sure you reach your target response rate.

Any device. Anywhere. By default, surveys are accessible from any device. With CPS, organizations achieve more than a 10% increase in their responses over previous methods, and average a 70% response rate.

Assessment results are confidential, but we aggregate information to provide benchmarks. This allows you to see where your agency stands in comparison to national averages and to organizations of similar size and type. Results will be shared with your organization’s leadership, and it is up to you how much you want to share further with others within your organization or any external partners.
