It’s not about achieving the impossible “0” accidents, it’s about “0” risk behaviours
Though the importance of Health and Safety is undeniable, it can often be met with scepticism, or worse, complacency. Creating a culture of ‘zero harm’ starts with everyone playing the role of a Leader when it comes to Health and Safety; requiring a change in perceptions and attitudes towards Health and Safety in the process.
TACK’s approach to Behavioural Based Safety looks at safety through the lens of human behaviour, rather than processes or technical solutions. We reframe Health and Safety rules by first building a Safety mind-set and embedding this throughout the organisation – starting with Senior Leadership. Our solutions disrupt conventional thinking and embed a deep-rooted personal connection with Health and Safety. Whether it be experiencing the impact of Health & Safety transgressions first hand or hearing personal stories of those affected, Leaders’ perspective on the importance of Health and Safety is forever altered.
- Reframing Health and Safety
- Doing the right thing – looking at “should I” rather than “can I”
- Focus on ramifications as well as Health & Safety processes themselves
- Challenge common misconceptions “it couldn’t happen to me”
- Move from a theoretical to personal approach
- Create the business case: zero harm means higher productivity and everyone goes home safely
- Knowing small health and safety transgressions are as important as ‘large’ ones
- Build the right safety mind-set
- Build interdependence: from looking after yourself to looking after others
