Behaviour change - Improving health and safety performance

Behaviour change - Improving health and safety performance

5 July 2018

Not all risks can be engineered out of the work environment: even with the best systems in place, individuals take short cuts and make mistakes. However, understanding both workers' and managers' behaviour – and having strategies to modify it – can limit the impact of risks.

This one-day course has been especially designed, by the Health and Safety Laboratory, to apply behaviour insights and modification techniques to the glass manufacturing environment. 

What will be covered?

The course aims to equip delegates to deploy an organisational approach to behaviour change. The course will:

• supply advanced reading to supplement the one day course

• show how principles of human behaviour can be mapped to integrated health and safety management systems

• demonstrate the significance of an organisational approach to behaviour change

• introduce a range of techniques used to motivate and sustain change in the workplace

• give tools to implement a behavioural change programme.


The training is linked to ASCENT – the HSE Science Division’s Achieving safety culture excellence now and tomorrow programme.

About the trainers

The course will be delivered by two of the HSE’s Science Division trainers, who are experts in the field of behaviour change and safety culture. They will draw on vast experience from their daily work in research, consultancy and incident investigation – across a variety of industries – to help delegates consider how they can best implement successful interventions.

Who is it for?

The course is most appropriate for:

• health and safety managers with limited knowledge of behaviour change

• those who have established behaviour change initiatives but are interested in further application.
