Behavioural Safety Management for Construction


This course explains how frontline supervisors and managers can influence behaviours, how various types of human errors can cause accidents or incidents and how these can be eliminated or reduced.  It also emphasises to frontline supervisors and managers their roles in engaging in positive health and safety conversations and providing constructive feedback to team members.

Who needs this qualification?

This course is suitable for those in managerial or supervisory roles within the construction industry.

Why is this training important?

Research shows that people’s behaviour accounts for 56% of all potentially serious injuries and fatalities. The ultimate benefit of implementing behavioural safety in construction is that it can reduce incidents of workplace injury in the industry. Behavioural-safety leadership can positively impact people’s safety behaviour and it has the potential to reduce incidents. Not only does this increase safety at work, but it will also reduce the cost of absence due to workplace injury.

Another key advantage of implementing the behavioural-safety model is that it encourages workplace participation. By making both workers and management a part of the process, everyone becomes accountable. Management should recognise and reinforce positive ownership to encourage everyone on-site to identify and report unsafe behaviour.
