Time: 1:00 PM - 5:00 PM

The last century has brought amazing breakthroughs in how organizations manage safety and reduce incidents. However, despite more training programs, signs, job-aids, procedures, and policies, people are still getting hurt. When we analyze these incidents, it is often clear that someone could have done something to prevent or lessen the severity of the incident. This is our opportunity! Organizations can significantly increase employee engagement and reduce their incidents by using behavioral technology to implement systems that increase the consistency of safe practices.

Learning Outcomes:

  1. What are the key practices in a world-class safety culture and how can we define and achieve them?
  2. How do you achieve strong employee engagement in and ownership of safety improvement efforts?
  3. What are the critical components and key features of a behavioral approach to improving safety?
