If you think safety’s expensive, try having an accident … Successfull safety management involves understanding human factors and having the ability to correct human error to improve safety habits.

For many years there has been an emphasis on physical and engineering controls and on safe working practices and procedures. Increasingly, however, studies have shown that technical measures alone will not eliminate accidents in the workplace. Increasing emphasis must be placed on how people fit into, and interact with, their environment and work systems, and on how their performance affects safety.

Managing human failures is essential to preventing major accidents, occupational accidents and ill health, all of which can cost businesses money, reputation and potentially their continued existence. 

This highly interactive Behavioural Based Safety training seminar will provide you with all the necessary skills and talents to create a management approach which engages, motivates and sustains safe behaviors at work. The course takes a systematic approach, examining the motivation underlying behaviors, in order to increase safe behavior.
