Unsafe acts occur in every workplace. Some of these unsafe acts result in accidents, injuries and damage. One of the most effective ways of reducing the number of unsafe acts that occur in the workplace (and hence improve your accident statistics overall) is to introduce a ‘Behavioral Safety Approach’.
The aim of this training course is to:
- Discuss and explore the causes of unsafe acts in the workplace and determine what we can do to prevent these events from occurring
- Provide a basic understanding of Behavioral Safety Theory, and
- Introduce a ‘tool’ that will help to influence, modify and change behaviors in the workplace
SESSION 1. Unsafe Acts – The Need for Behavioral Safety
This first session clearly explains the aim of the course and gives an overview of all the main components that will be covered during the course.
This session also looks in detail at the subject of unsafe acts and what can be done to prevent them from occurring in the workplace. This session is comprehensive and can be run as a stand alone ‘short course’ on unsafe acts.
SESSION 2. The Fundamentals of Behavioral Safety
The second session looks at and answers the following fundamental questions:
- What is Behavioral Safety all about?
- Why do organisations introduce Behavioral Safety into the workplace?
- What is the definition of the term Behavioral Safety?
- What is a Behavioral Observation?
- What is a Behavioral Safety Program?
SESSION 3. The Behavioral Safety Tool
This session looks in detail at the Behavioural Safety Tool and explains how to use this tool in order to conduct Behavioral Observations. It also clarifies and summarises the five key steps in the Behavioral Observation Process.
SESSION 4. A Practical Exercise
This session begins by looking at:
- How to introduce yourself to the person you are going to observe
- How to give ‘balanced’ feedback on completion of the Observation, and
- What potential problems may arise (when doing a Behavioral Observation) and how you can overcome them.
The session then involves the participants in a practical Behavioral Observation exercise.
SESSION 5. The Course Review
The course concludes with the participants being involved in a formal course review.
This training course is practical and results orientated. If your organisation follows the principles and practices contained within this course then it will significantly reduce the number of unsafe acts that occur in the workplace.
