How to develop a culture of safety

2How to develop a culture of safety

When people think safe they work safe. But this is easier said than done. The Adapto approach recognises human behaviour as one of the major causes of harm, so unsafe behaviour is a critical focus.

Culture is not something that can be forced onto people. We see it as ‘the collective noun for the habits shared by a group’. When those habits are unproductive and unsafe, accidents are too often the result. The Adapto approach solves this problem by changing the unsafe habits.

What’s more, we have shown that when about 25% of your people have safe work habits, the rest will follow. The result; a culture of safety. Recently one of Adapto’s client’s staff chose to meet with each other in their own time to discuss new ways to keep their workplace safe. That’s the kind of commitment we work for.
