Why People Don't Get Safety Right To Begin With
On the job safety management is a battle against two major factors; natural consequence and comfort and convenience.
Natural Consequences That Effect Employee Safety:
Natural consequence simply refers to the things around your organizations working environment; some of these things are obvious and controllable, others are clearly a potential problem, but for one reason or another are not changeable, and still others are impossible to see until they occur. On average they account for just over 4% of your potential incidents and accidents.
Comfort and Convenience: The Biggest Cause Of Accidents & Incidents:
Comfort and convenience, simply refers to an individual’s developed habits (unsafe behavior) and can represent as much as 96% of your potential incidents and accidents. They center on the fact that most people value their personal perception of comfort and convenience in just about everything they do. In regard to safety; what to you, may clearly be identified as an at risk behavior; to the person doing it, based on their own personal experiences, seems safe, comfortable, and convenient. Changing that perception of at risk behavior requires training, motivation and frequent positive reinforcement or more simply put “positive behavior modification”. A Safety Awareness Incentive Program gives you that positive reinforcement tool to reinforce the training and best practices needed to maintain a safe and productive work environment.
