How To Build & Sustain Safety Behaviors In Your Workplace
Organizations must protect the health and safety of all associates. Behavioral safety science offers simple methods for analyzing, building, and sustaining habits needed to safeguard all associates from harm—from slips, trips, and falls to infectious diseases. Added advantage: these methods apply to any safety precaution behaviors, whether from an already existing protocol or a response to a new risk. These methods are a “multi-tool” for building and sustaining all safety behaviors in the workplace.
