Behavior Based Safety

Course Duration: Five days
Behavioral programs have become popular in the safety domain, as there is evidence that a proportion of accidents are caused by unsafe behavior. Whilst a focus on changing unsafe behavior into safe behavior is appropriate, this should not deflect attention from also analyzing why people behave unsafely. This training cover the reasons for not focusing solely on changing individual behavior without considering necessary changes to how people are organized, managed, motivated, rewarded and their physical work environment, tools and equipment can result in treating the symptom only, but without addressing the root causes of unsafe behavior.
