Summit Week: Human Performance & Behavior Change

What is it that produces a safe environment with safe workers? Is it people with the right attitude… is it a reduced risk environment… or is it both? Do we need reward or punishment… or both? How do different cultures interact successfully to work safely? What is the best environment for a person to work in physically? How does one know?

Listening to a radio show recently about people trying to get out of debt, the host said this, “it is not the math that got them in the situation it is the behavior; that is why changing the behavior is the first step.” It was in reference to people who wanted to know why the had to pay off small debts first and not the large credit cards with high interest.

Point being, that the more one practices a behavior, the higher the probability that the behavior becomes habit. Providing a better environment with the right tools increases the ability to perform the behavior. It is with this in mind that the sessions below were put together:


  • Proactive Prevention of Injuries and Accidents Due to Human Error
    Ergonomic and Human Performance Improvement
    Working Across Languages and Cultures


  • Changing Behavior By Praising the 49 Character Traits
    Criminal Prosecution of Accidents
    Using Training Simulation to Improve Human Performance
    Design for Reliable Performance


  • Using FACT to Measure & Analyze Fatigue (Both Reactive & Proactive)
    Planning Your Improvements
