Develop a Modern Safety Culture

Neil Roberts will be presenting “Advanced Behavioral Management: Developing a Modern Safety Culture” on the Safety and Risk Management and Human Error Reduction & Behavior Change Best Practices Tracks at the TapRooT® Summit on Thursday, June 26 at 9:15 a.m.

The session will have the following objectives:

1. To demonstrate the benefits and limitations of safety climate and safety culture surveys as a precursor to the introduction of a safety culture change program.

2. To outline and demonstrate the benefits of a holistic and advanced approach that would encourage change in an organization’s safety culture. This would include reference to four key areas:

(i) Management Leadership
(ii) Safety Performance Measurement
(iii) Safety Coaching
(iv) Safety Interdependence

3. To demonstrate that habitualization of front-line safety behaviors has its limitations, but if we are to make a systemic and long-lasting difference to the culture we need to identify and encourage a change of management-based behaviors.

Although the title includes the word “advanced,” any attendee will benefit.
