Learning about how behaviour affects safety environment
Behavioural safety is a proactive approach that focuses on employees' behaviour in order to prevent accidents and promote a safer work environment. It involves identifying and addressing unsafe behaviours through observations, feedback, and training.
By implementing behavioural safety programs, organisations aim to increase awareness and accountability for safety among employees. This approach recognises that most accidents are caused by human error and seeks to modify employees' behaviour to reduce the likelihood of accidents occurring.
By encouraging safe behaviours and providing the necessary tools and resources, behavioural safety programs can have a significant impact on reducing workplace accidents and injuries.
Through continuous monitoring and improvement, organisations can create a culture of safety where employees are actively engaged in promoting and maintaining a safe workplace.
