Event overview

This course is delivered by our psychologists with extensive experience in behavioural safety techniques. It gives you techniques to better maintain your behavioural change approach and embed safe behaviours.

This interactive course is designed to overcome the common pitfalls encountered when implementing behavioural observation programmes. It will also ensure that your programme is embedded within a recognised behavioural change approach.

Who should attend?

This course is targeted directly at those who have previously attended HSL’s course Behaviour Change: Improving Health and Safety Performance, or HS managers who consider themselves to have a comprehensive behavioural change programme in place within their organisation. Such a programme should be mapped onto an integrated health and safety management system and address the key ingredients of behavioural change (support, knowledge, skill, leadership and worker involvement)
