Promoting safe behaviour at work is a critical part of the
management of health and safety, because behaviour turns systems
and procedures into reality. On their own, good systems do not
ensure successful health and safety management, as the level of
success is determined by how organisations "live" their
systems. This report gives an understanding of: the theory
underpinning strategies to promote behaviour which are currently in
use; how to use behavioural strategies to promote a wider range of
critical health and safety behaviours; how to integrate behavioural
strategies into a health and safety management system. States that
to focus solely on changing individual behaviour without
considering necessary changes to how people are organised, managed,
motivated, rewarded and their physical work environment, tools and
equipment, can result in treating the symptom only, without
addressing the root causes of unsafe behaviour.
