Statistics show that unsafe acts are the most common cause of workplace accidents. Despite the introduction of training programs and safe work practices and procedures, controlling unsafe acts has proven to be difficult. The reason for this is that unsafe acts involve the Human Factor, that is, they occur as a result of people’s attitudes and behaviours.
Behavioural Safety offers a way to reduce the incidence of unsafe acts by modifying people’s behaviours and improving their attitudes towards safety.
This program is designed to provide an understanding of Behavioural Safety and to show how a Behavioural Safety program works.
The program looks at:

Bullying can happen in any organisation or workplace, and anyone can be a victim of it.
Workplace bullying can have severe effects on anyone subjected to it including:
Bullying can affect a victim's life and relationships outside of work and in some cases cause health problems such as headaches and sleep disorders.
This program covers the following:
Clearly it's in everyone's best interests to prevent workplace bullying, and put a stop to it wherever it occurs. By working together to develop effective policies and procedures, and being vigilant in identifying and addressing bullying, healthier and safer workplaces for everyone can be achieved.

Drugs and Alcohol are a problem in the workplace.
The object of this program is to identify some of the problems and to look at a variety of options available to handle this issue.
These are just some of the facts:
Included in the program:
It is commonly agreed that at least 10% of the entire workforce suffers from some form of drug dependency problem. This 10% figure is also seen by most to be on the increase.

There is human involvement in virtually every accident and incident, however in many cases it is not the direct primary cause.
The intention of this program is to examine the human factors involved in accidents, incidents and mistakes in the workplace.
Topics included in the program:
Not all accidents are preventable, but careful forethought and planning, combined with strict adherence to safe work practices will minimise the frequency and severity of accidents and incidents.

We are all familiar with different committees but how do committees function and what elements combine to make an effective committee.
A committee is a group of people, usually people with a vested interest, brought together to manage, address or oversee a particular organisation, part of an organisation or a particular problem or issue.
For a committee to be effective:
The word committee is derived from the word commit, and commitment to achieve its goals and objectives is the basis of any successful committee.
The objective of this program is to highlight the importance of Workplace Safety Committees and by so doing, increase awareness of the standards for worker responsibility in observing and being active in daily safety procedures.

There are laws and regulations that require the investigation and reporting of certain types of accidents. Insurance requirements also lead to many Accident Investigations as do potential claims at common law. However, from an Occupational Health & Safety point of view, the main aim of Accident Investigations is not to fulfil these legal and insurance obligations, but rather to prevent recurrences of the same or similar accidents.
Accident Investigations therefore should be regarded as an important part of accident prevention.
This program covers:
Learning why and how accidents occur is fundamental to making improvements in both working conditions and operational methods.
The Accident Investigation process will reduce the number of workplace accidents and should be regarded as an important component of any workplace health and safety strategy.

It would not be unfair to say that the identification, evaluation and control of hazards is the cornerstone of current workplace health and safety philosophy. The principle is simple, if we either eliminate the hazards or control them so they pose no serious risks to our health and safety, then we have a safe workplace.
Any successful safety strategy has this principle as its foundation. However, the degree to which it is successful is dependent on the following three factors:
Because the process of hazard identification and evaluation, often referred to as risk assessment, is so important, it is vital that everyone fully understands the meaning of the words, ‘hazard’ and ‘risk’, and, importantly the difference between.
Hazards are always present so it is important that hazards are either completely removed or controlled so that the risks they present are deemed to be at an acceptable level.

In the past, safety was often regarded as just an adjunct to production.
Today, it is well recognised that managing safety issues efficiently and effectively will contribute to an organisation's financial viability and it will demonstrate a commitment to the most valuable asset of any organisation; its people.
Safety awareness is the starting point to accident prevention.
Included in this program:
What is Safety Awareness?
It's a responsibility, a commitment, an obligation. It's common sense, teamwork and safe work procedures. It's recognising hazards and showing a willingness to act to control any hazard present.
The program has been designed for all personnel. It can be used as a general safety training program and can also be utilised as an induction program for new personnel to introduce safety concepts.

Some workplace hazards are obvious: when there is a risk of physical injury in the workplace, it can be relatively easy to identify and address. But work can also carry risks to mental health.
This program examines the various ways stress can affect members of an organisation as well as potential methods for combatting it.
Topics included in the program:
Work-related stress is not always the easiest of workplace hazards to identify. But being aware of the potential risks, and moving pro-actively to prevent stress taking hold, will help minimise the chances of stress-related illness.
