Psychological safety is the idea that team members can take risks, such as voicing concerns or putting forth innovative ideas, and is considered a vital part of robust safety culture. This article describes the relationship between psychological safety and in-role performance in nursing and four other organizational settings. Results suggest routine task performance increases with psychological safety only to a point, then declines. The authors describe collective accountability to offset the decline in task performance.
