About Behavior Based Safety Course Program

Employee behavior in workplaces is affected by many organizational, task-related and individual factors. If the factors affecting behavior are negative, unsafe behavior becomes stereotyped and may cause undesirable events and accidents in the workplace. Therefore, identifying the underlying reasons for employees’ unsafe behavior and discovering the factors that cause them to act unsafe provides an infrastructure to modify these behavioral patterns in a positive way.

Employees and managers who are involved in the planning, development and implementation of behavior based safety approaches in workplaces will have a general understanding about the factors that affect human behavior, how OHS leadership and leadership behaviors affect OHS performance and safety culture, the effects of the workplace psychological environment on employee behavior, the factors that direct behavior, the factors that affect successful behavior, behaviors that create a safety culture, how behavior change occurs, behavior change programs and how to make behavior change sustainable. This information provides a good basis for conducting behavior based safety programs in workplaces.
