The safety of the organization is influenced by various factors. In order to increase the level of safety, it is necessary to focus on these factors and to influence them the right way in order to enhance their level. Regarding the safety, safety culture is one of the endogenous factors of organizations.

Safety culture issues have not been given much attention so far, although a safety culture can play an important role at a complex level of safety for the organization. In order to increase the level of safety culture, it is required to assess its current state of play. The process of assessing the organization's safety culture is dealt with by one of the institutional grant projects at UNIZA's Faculty of Security Engineering.

The elaborated article focuses on the first part of this process, which is the identification of the safety culture sub-sectors and safety culture indicators. Safety culture indicators serve for evaluation of identified sub-sectors, the values of which will be further used to assess the complex level of the safety culture.

The article identified 6 safety culture sub-sectors and twenty safety indicators. The individual indicators were later allocated to the corresponding subsectors. In addition, the relevance of each subsystem, which can help to better assess the safety culture, has been celebrated.

The methods of analysis and description, as well as the explanation methods, were used to process the article. The results of this article are useful to the professional public, the security science students, as they extend the theoretical foundation of organization security. The results of the article can also be used by any organization looking at the possibilities of analysing its safety.
