From Reluctance & Complacency to Engagement – Practical Change Techniques for Safety

A lot of safety problems in the workplace are actually not technical problems. They are ‘people’ problems.

Complacency, resistance to change and lack of ownership are some of the people-related problems you may face. Yet, with so many training and procedures, why are employees still not behaving accordingly? What more can be done beyond the Educate-Nag-Enforce approach?

This workshop aims to expand your toolkit in tackling the people side of safety. Its concepts are rooted in psychology and organizational behaviours, which are distilled into practical approaches that can be applied in any workplaces. This is not a typical lecture-style workshop, but one with lots of interaction, exercises and fun.

Topics covered:

  • Why blaming and punishment seldom work
  • Why people behave unsafely –understanding the inducing factors of System, Attitude and Culture
  • The way human mind works
  • The psychology of change – why facts and statistics are insufficient to drive change
  • 5 types of employees commonly encountered in safety
  • 8 practical techniques you can use to change the attitude of employees
