Behavioural Safety Workshop
(an exercise in helping to make your site safer)
Is Your Health & Safety being compromised by silly mistakes?
Have you, as an organisation, set in place policies and procedures to combat this, yet still these mistakes are happening?
90% of Employment Tribunals occur because Employers / Employees make procedural errors.
Why is this when the policies and procedures are set in place?
You could have a problem with Behavioural Safety.
Procedures and rules alone will not keep people safe and what is needed is a safe attitude and culture.
The purpose of the workshop is to create an environment where management, employees and key business partners are truly committed to creating a workplace which is a safe place and where everyone goes home safely.
The workshop looks at why we should be interested in human behaviour in the workplace with reference to health and safety. We will look at how human error and behaviour can impact on health and safety and how human behaviour in the workplace can affect the physical and mental health of workers.
The workshop provides advice and information to decrease the incidence of unsafe acts by getting people to think about and be aware of why they act in certain ways and help them improve their attitude towards working safely.
One of the prime aims of the workshop is to get delegates to understand the importance of reporting of all near misses, unsafe conditions and unsafe acts.
To get people to stop, consider and think for one second before they act.
To have people committed to taking on different actions to keep people safe.
To create a work ethic where people do not walk past when they see something unsafe.
Who should attend?
The workshop is very interactive and includes a lot of group discussion and group exercises. It is aimed at everyone who works on site from directors downwards, including contractors who work on site.
