Our behaviour (or "the human factor") plays an important role in the workplace. Safe behaviour ensures safe working in potentially dangerous situations or environments. Conversely, things can go badly wrong when unsafe behaviour is applied to procedures at work. Courses include:
- PEP TALK - Motivating Safe Behaviours, has been developed to promote personal responsibility for safety throughout the organisation. Pep Talk: (traditional definition: A short talk designed to enthuse a targeted audience to increase confidence, productivity and team working ), is much more than just a health & safety conversation. It helps supervisors and line-managers to understand what drives or triggers a particular behaviour, thereby promoting a conversation that genuinely promotes desired behaviours in an organisation. Additionally, the process allows line management to find out what is actually happening in the workplace, and why it might be different to that planned and expected
Using the core Problem - Effect - Prevent process, the conversation is driven to a deeper level; i.e.:
- True underlying causes of a behaviour, act or condition
- Actions require_onced
- Lessons learnt
- Knowledge transfer to other appropriate elements within the organisation
- FIRST DEFENCE - Personal Responsibility for Safety, integrates safety observation and hazard identification to generate a workplace-wide personal responsibility.
First Defence uses a simple Problem - Effect - Prevent approach which not only applies to self behaviour but also to activities which people may see others undertaking.
