People and Behaviour

The key to a safe working environment are your people.

You may well have implemented a very comprehensive safety management system but if your people have a negative attitude to safety and unsafe behaviour goes unchecked, your safety management system could fail at any time. For a system to be effective, everyone must play their part. Many organisations put massive effort into the safety system but forget to take their people on the safety journey. Getting a healthy balance of system and people functions is crucial.
