Driving better health and safety
Why do people take risks that could result in injury and/or ill health? What influences our decision making? How do people think? How can we bolster training that is provided to businesses?
Our team of experts in human factors and occupational psychology have developed a model outlining the myriad of influences on human behaviour, regardless of the risk or behaviour concerned. This session will outline this model considering how businesses can categorise the varying influences and reflect on what they currently provide to their employees to ensure they are more likely to follow health and safety than not.
