Behavioural Safety Services

Our Philosophy

We believe that influencing behaviour via effective leadership is the key to sustainable excellence in safety these days. We enjoy working with organisations who would like to go beyond compliance and towards sustainable excellence in safety performance.

We use the key principles of Behavioural Science which can be applied to individuals and organisations to shift mindsets for safety from HAVE to, to  WANT to and then we’re PROUD to!

Behavioural Safety Services and Training Ltd are a carefully selected team of specialist IOSH accredited Behavioural Safety Consultants and Trainers.  Formed in 2006 by Darren Sutton in anticipation of the significant new demands that the Corporate Manslaughter Act and now ISO 45001 would eventually place on organisations.

Thankfully, people are starting to realise that relying on paperwork and systems is just not enough anymore.  It’s now all about the kind of CULTURE an organisation has that leads to the BEHAVIOUR of their people that is really important.

All our consultants have been personally trained and mentored by Darren who holds an MSc in Performance Psychology from The University of Edinburgh and is currently preparing for a research PhD in this field. All are highly experienced in the fields of Performance Psychology, Safety Leadership, Behavioural Safety, CBT and ABC Analysis as well as being IOSH accredited safety professionals.

We take great pride in developing a close working relationship with our clients which enables us to create a meaningful and effective risk management strategy that is specifically designed for your needs.  We have been instrumental in developing successful strategies with some of the largest companies in UK including AstraZeneca, Diageo, Highland Spring, Sodexo Corporate Services, The MoD, BBC, BAe Systems, Travis Perkins Group, Wickes and Associated British Foods.  We also enjoy working with SMEs who are committed to creating an environment for safety excellence to prevail.
