Behavior-Based Safety: Leveraging Human Factors to Drive Strong Safety Performance - On-Demand

Webinar now available On-Demand.

WEBINAR SNAPSHOT: Learn how to leverage human factors to drive strong safety performance by using safety culture assessments and employee and supervisor training to increase safety empowerment, safety ownership, and safety engagement.

Over 5,000 people are killed and almost 3 million people are injured at work each year in the U.S. Controlling hazards, implementing safe practices and procedures, providing appropriate protective equipment, and offering effective worker and supervisor training are necessary preconditions for a strong safety culture, but these efforts alone are insufficient to drive truly exceptional safety performance.

To take safety performance to the next level, safety professionals must examine the interactions among  equipment, facilities, procedures, people, and organizational systems and focus on the factors that contribute to risky behaviors and unsafe conditions,  working with personnel throughout the organization to design and implement effective solutions.

Use this on-demand webinar when Sherry Perdue, Ph.D., of Safety Performance Solutions, Inc. will share the organizational and human factors that contribute to safe vs. unsafe behaviors and how to use training to foster a culture that rewards and encourages safety.

After attending this webinar, you’ll be able to: 

  • Leverage principles of people and behavior-based psychology to promote an ideal safety culture
  • Use safety culture assessments to identify and drive improvement opportunities
  • Identify strategies to increase empowerment, ownership, and engagement in occupational health and safety
  • Use employee and supervisor training programs to promote empowerment and engagement

And, as a bonus for attending, you’ll get BLR’s “Instilling Safety Awareness” checklist!
