Behavioral safety is the systematic application of psychological research on human behavior to the problems of safety in the workplace. Studies indicate that 96 percent of all workplace accidents are triggered by unsafe behavior. Participants will receive tips on how to train supervisors on identifying behavior issues and ways to address these issues that will reverse the poor behavior.
The class is delivered using multi-media tools in a lecture/discussion format. Attendees are encouraged to participate in discussions on seminar points, video clips, and human behavior issues.
Upon completion of Behavioral Based Safety, attendees should:
- Understand the common elements of all behavioral based systems
- Learn important coaching skills to bring back to the workplace
- Develop the tools to institute planned observations of employees
This introductory class is intended for any person who is responsible for the day-to-day supervision of employees, or a member of a company safety committee. Attendees can range from company owners to line managers, lead people and supervisors.
