What our Clients say about the course!

“This programme has helped change the way many of our Senior people think, not just about Safety, but about leadership in general.  Understanding and influencing human behaviour is essential to developing and maintaining a Safety Culture and this is Darren’s expertise.  He can engage with Directors at the most senior level and has proven to be a powerful catalyst in support of our Stay Safe journey”
Mike O’Hara – Group Head of Health & Safety, Travis Perkins plc

It’s a pleasure to recommend Darren and BSST, they’ve been great to work with. He delivered courses to our leadership and training teams here at Horizon in 2015. Each had an immediate impact, and 6 months on I’m still hearing phrases like “I’ve ABC analysed this”, and I’ve used a “Clive Woodward approach to that”, and we’re certainly all searching out “holes in our cheese”!

The theories really have stuck and are positively impact all change, not just related to HSE.

Ben Hirst – MD Horizon Platforms Ltd and Chairman of IPAF

We elected to work with Darren and BSST as we embarked on our Behavioural Safety and Cultural Development programme and there were a number of reasons for this.  Darren wanted to understand our company and to ensure what he delivered was tailored and right for us. He stood out from the competition as showing a genuine passion for what he delivered and this has shown in the outputs from the course.

We have had positive feedback from all the courses we have run to date, even from the most sceptical participants and the learnings have been utilised in our day to day operations.  The work we have done with BSST has certainly been beneficial to Story and we look forward to continuing to work with Darren as we widen and develop the programme further.

Learning Outcomes

To enable delegates to understand safety culture and how it can be improved & sustained alongside other company management systems.

To appreciate how all behaviours are prompted by activators and then reinforced by the 4 key consequences.

To have a clear understanding of how behaviours and the nature of human error contribute to accidents in the workplace. To understand how habits are formed and can be changed just as easily as they are formed.

To understand the principles of effective behavioural psychology tools required to create a safety culture that encourages a want-to rather than a have-to approach to managing risk.

The course introduces delegates to key tools and techniques that can be adopted to influence the behaviour of their workforce with a view to developing a positive safety culture. The course will highlight the principles of leadership, CBT, NLP, ABC Analysis, Swiss Cheese Theory and modern behavioural psychology techniques that are well proven.

Though the course follows a set format, the content is designed to be highly interactive and encourages delegates to share their real life experiences of how leaders from their past have been very effective in influencing behaviour. The course has been very well received in several FTSE100 organisations. The course will highlight specific tools and techniques that are applied in sport, therapy, sales and other areas of business to influence behaviours and can also be applied to safety.
