University of Žilina (SLOVAKIA)
It is necessary to actively introduce new results of security research into the education process of students of security professions. These students need new and up-to-date information during their education to expand their knowledge and skills and increase their employability after completing their studies. However, students can actively contribute to the preparation and implementation of academic research during their studies as well. One example of how to link research and education is to involve students of the second year of engineering studies of the Security Management Department into research of a safety culture.

This article describes the individual steps from preparation to the implementation of safety culture research of selected organizations. The article also focuses on analysing the available information sources on this issue, which is the basis of the partial conclusions. Based on this analysis, a model for organizational safety culture assessment was proposed. This model consists of identifying and evaluating the subsectors and indicators of the safety culture that serve for its complex assessment. The proposed model of assessment must be verified in practice in order to ascertain its applicability and to eliminate possible errors and shortcomings. At this stage, as many students as possible have to be involved in the research.

The methods of description and explanation were used for the preparation and implementation of the research as well as for the elaboration of this article. In addition, it was necessary to use methods of relations and functional analysis, synthesis and comparison. Part of the proposed model for organizational safety culture assessment presents managed interview methods, questionnaire survey methods, observation and analysis of statistical data.

The aim of the article is to point out the active involvement of students in research conducted at the home university during their studies. Involvement of students in this research will allow them to get acquainted with the theoretical problems as well as with problems encountered in the standard working life they need to be prepared for while studying at the university.
