What to expect from our behavioural science course


Safety Leadership

You will begin the course by exploring different leadership styles, including your own. How does leadership and the way we measure performance impact on culture and behaviour? How can you start to think differently?
Avoiding Failure or Creating Excellence
We’ll be looking at more than accident causation models like swiss cheese theory and root cause analysis – because causation isn’t linear. We tend to think of things lining up in a certain way, but it’s not always like that. This module identifies new ways of thinking.
Behavioural science relating to safety performance
This module helps us to understand why people ‘want’ to do things and why they’re ‘proud’ to do them. We’ll look at discretionary effort and why people go the extra mile when we introduce three key steps: Purpose, Autonomy and Mastery.

ABC Analysis

We’ll examine how we can be more innovative with our A’s and realign our C’s to create much better behaviour. We’ll also be delving into how we can shift people’s mindset from ‘I have to’ – to ‘I’m proud to’.

Goal Setting

You’ll learn how to set better goals for safety to really influence people’s behaviour towards sustainable change – focusing on outcome goals or performance goals rather than lagging indicators or traditional targets that can lead to unwanted outcomes.

Key Drivers of Behaviour

You’ll learn about different behavioural change models to understand where human behaviour comes from and the relationship between our thoughts, feelings, actions and performance.

What our delegates say

I believe all leaders should take the course – it’s extremely insightful.

It’s so engaging that you actually want to log back in to continue learning.

Fascinating, informative and enlightening. I was really pleased to discover that some of my existing leadership practices are recognised positive techniques.

I’ve been a safety practitioner for more than 20 years and yet this course has given me an insight into new areas.
