Behavioural safety training is a crucial element in maintaining good health and safety practices. Even the most effective systems quickly lose their effectiveness without the awareness of how behaviour contributes to the process.
Creating a safe working environment is determined as a result of how successfully health and safety procedures are adopted by the workforce. Therefore, a positive attitude toward good safety practices is an integral part of any health and safety management system. This training course defines what behavioural safety is and explains the origins of the concept. It covers some simple ways to implement it in the workplace so that it brings immediate benefits. It also gives some examples of ‘at risk behaviours’ that lead to unnecessary risks. Using these examples to analysis risk will help you to devise ways to measure your workforce’s attitude to health and safety so you can identify ways to encourage positive workforce attitudes. Finally it looks at the key laws regarding health and safety in the workplace.
The HSE report that a “Significant number of accidents reportedly caused by inappropriate behaviour” and that “Behaviours determine the performance of a company’s safety systems”. For their full analysis on the topic, see Human Factors: Behavioural Safety Approaches — An Introduction
