Behavioural Safety for the Construction Industry

Event code: 77018

Safety is influenced by a number of factors such as workplace environment, management’s commitment to safety, attitude or behaviour of working personnel towards safety, etc. Workers’ positive behaviour towards safety is considered one of the key factors in preventing accidents at workplaces. A successful introduction of behavioural safety process, focussing on identifying and reducing unsafe behaviour and reinforcing safe behaviour is one means of improving safety at workplaces.
