Behavioural safety is the name given to a number of types of programmes that aim to improve safety by changing the behaviour of workers. Behavioural Safety courses encourage learners to adopt safe practices at work to minimise the occurrence of accidents. Research shows that 95 percent of all accidents at the workplaces are trigger by unsafe behaviours. This course defines behavioural safety and explains the origins of the concept. It covers how it can be implemented in the workplace and some of the potential benefits. It includes analysis of some examples of ‘at risk behaviours’ and some examples of ways you can measure how well your organisation is doing when it comes to safety. Finally it touches on some of the key laws regarding health and safety in the workplace and how to ensure positive workforce attitudes.
