More about Behavioural Safety Courses and Safety Culture Courses

Behaviour Safety

Behaviour-Based Safety Management is the process of engagement between employees at all levels of a business that helps individuals to:

  • analyse their own behaviour
  • identify unsafe behaviours
  • remove unsafe behaviour incentives as well as the barriers for safe behaviour;
  • minimise the occurrence of unsafe human error;
  • create the knowledge, skills, and motivation for safe behaviour;
  • make safe behaviour the ‘way we work around here’.

Behavioural safety courses aim to help everyone across the organisation work towards creating a culture that prioritises these elements on a long-term basis.

Behavioural safety is normally applied to working behaviours that can be easily observed. However, it is equally applicable to supervisors’ and managers’ behaviour as they carry out their safety management responsibilities.

A successful Safety Culture Change Programme addresses everyone’s safety related behaviour and will include:

  • A Board and Senior Management team that are continually mindful of safety and are seen by their organisation to drive and support safety improvement;
  • Supervisors that are safety leaders who to take action to improve safety within their team;
  • Employees that believe behaving safely is the only way to conduct yourself and regularly contribute to improving safety.

Too often, significant investment of time and money has failed to bring about long term change in safe behaviour and reduce accident rates. Sustainability has not been built into these programmes. And they commonly do not touch the safe behaviours required in high consequence low likelihood industries.

To have a successful Behavioural Safety process people’s attitudes towards safety have to be challenged and, where necessary, changed. Once the cultural change is implemented, it has to be sustained. This implies continually interacting with employees at all levels of an organisation in the process of improving safety.  

To support Behaviour Based Safety Management and Safety Culture Improvement, training providers offer a wide range of workshops designed for specific types of industry. The providers will use their deep understanding of good safety management practice to ensure your Behavioural Safety course delivers long term improvements in safety performance.
