The way we approach safety, health and wellbeing has to change. Only then will we start to see a shift in people’s attitudes, behaviour and performance.

Who's the program for?

The Behavioural Science course is for leaders, managers and supervisors across every industry. By completing this program, you’ll learn what influences behaviour. We’ll give you the skills so that you can influence people in your own workplace to want to work safely.

Module 1

Safety Leadership

Before starting to look at how people behave in our workplace, we need to understand the impact of leadership and culture. We’ll explore different leadership styles, including your own, and encourage you to look at things differently.

Module 2

Avoiding Failure or Creating Excellence

We’ll be looking at more than accident causation models like swiss cheese theory and root cause analysis – because causation isn’t linear. We tend to think of things lining up in a certain way, but it’s not always like that. This module identifies new ways of thinking.

Module 3

Key Drivers of Behaviour

You’ll learn about different behavioural change models to understand where human behaviour comes from and the relationship between our thoughts, feelings, actions and performance.

Module 4

Behavioural science relating to safety performance

This module helps us to understand why people ‘want’ to do things and why they’re ‘proud’ to do them. We’ll look at discretionary effort and why people go the extra mile when we introduce three key steps: Purpose, Autonomy and Mastery.

Module 5

ABC Analysis

We’ll examine how we can be more innovative with our A’s and realign our C’s to create much better behaviour. We’ll also be delving into how we can shift people’s mindset from ‘I have to’ – to ‘I’m proud to’.

Module 6

Goal Setting

You’ll learn how to set better goals for safety to really influence people’s behaviour towards sustainable change – focusing on outcome goals or performance goals rather than lagging indicators or traditional targets that can lead to unwanted outcomes.

What our delegates say?

  • I believe all leaders should take the course – it’s extremely insightful. 
  • It’s so engaging that you actually want to log back in to continue learning. 
  • Fascinating, informative and enlightening. I was really pleased to discover that some of my existing leadership practices are recognised positive techniques.
  • I’ve been a safety practitioner for more than 20 years and yet this course has given me an insight into new areas.
