Event description
To make a significant change to your safety culture you first must understand what makes people tick!

About this Event

Behavioural Based Safety (BBS) has dominated approaches to safety management for more than 20 years and it has achieved great results but with incidents still occurring in the workplace and safety performance and worker safety remaining a critical social, individual and organisational concerns, now is the time to ReThink the way we do things and look beyond the traditional BBS programs and that is where Neuroscience comes in.

Research tells us that approximately 90% of human behaviour is driven by the unconscious mind which results in human errors being identified as the top cause of serious injuries and incidents, so it makes sense that in order to improve safety performance we need to understand the way people think. If we understand how people think, we can then develop our safety programs to work with, rather than against the brains natural mode of functioning resulting in positive, sustainable safety outcomes.

The field of neuroscience is extensive, and it is a safety leadership game-changer because it provides a scientific, evidence-based approach to understanding how our brains work and how they select new ways of thinking and behaving. Recent research has also revealed some significant insights which are offering new ways to approach the reduction of human errors in the workplace. For example, we are learning that we see with our brains not our eyes which means we don't capture all of the detail around us and in fact our eyes and brains are more likely to see what they expect to see, rather than what is really happening....This one simple fact alone can make a significant difference in the workplace and provides us with powerful insights into how we can prevent many of the human errors that are currently occurring in our workplaces.
