This course defines behavioural safety and explains the origins of the concept. It covers how it can be implemented in the workplace and some of the potential benefits.
Understanding errors, whether violations, mistakes, or lapses, and how they combine with other workplace factors is key to improving health and safety management. Our range of Behavioural Safety courses will provide delegates with practical guidance on instigating a sustainable change in workplace behaviour.
Statistics show that unsafe acts are the most common cause of workplace accidents. Despite the introduction of training programs and safe work practices and procedures, controlling unsafe acts has proven to be difficult for some organisations. The reason for this is that an unsafe act involves the Human Factor, that is, accidents occur as a result of people’s attitudes and behaviours. Behavioural Safety courses offer a way to reduce the incidence of unsafe actions by modifying people’s behaviours and improving their attitudes towards safety.
This course includes an analysis of some examples of ‘at-risk behaviours’ and some examples of ways you can measure how well your organisation is doing when it comes to safety. Finally, it touches on some of the key laws regarding health and safety in the workplace and how to ensure positive workforce attitudes.
Introduction to subject, Essential Terms and Business Benefits, How Behavioural Safety Works, Setting Up a Programme, Ensuring Positive Workforce Attitudes.
