BEST BEHAVIOR: HOW TECHNOLOGY CAN ENHANCE BEHAVIORAL SAFETY IN THE WORKPLACE
The implementation of behavioral safety programs (BSPs) in the workplace has become a common answer to the question of how best to create a safety culture and thereby improve safety performance. But although BSPs can deliver impressive results, all too frequently they fail to live up to organizations' expectations.
So how can BSPs be supported in order to maximize their chances of success? What role does technology have to play in supporting good safety behaviors, and how can technology and behavioral safety combine to improve an organizations safety performance?
In this white paper, we examine the positive and negative effects of BSPs on organizational safety culture: why they fail: and how technological solutions can contribute to the growth of a successful safety culture.
