Understanding why your people don’t engage with your safety tools, the risks associated with the return to a ‘new normal’ and what you can do about it
Wednesday 29 July, 2020 | 12pm AEST / 10am AWST / 2pm NZST
The uncertainty created by current events, including COVID-19, has
led to increased stress, distraction and anxiety in the workplace.
And while we may find ourselves on the road to a ‘new normal’, many
organisations still need to navigate change, challenge and uncertainty
on a daily basis. There’s no more important time than now for workers
to be able to recognise hazards and make helpful choices around safety.
But with increased distractions at work and at home, such as threats
to job security and ambiguity of what’s next, workers are at increased
risk of incident and injury. So, how do you ensure that your people
make conscious safe choices every day, even in times of challenge
In many organisations, workers adopt a ‘tick and flick’ approach
to risk assessment tools and processes. This compliance behaviour
stems from unhelpful attitudes around the risk assessment process
and can be challenging to address. To shift behaviour, we need
to unpack the attitudes leaders and workers have around risk assessment
tools and processes. Only with helpful attitudes and a positive
mindset around safety will we see workers truly engage in the risk
identification and management process, particularly during challenging
In this webinar, we’ll explore the impact of hindering attitudes
towards risk assessments and how leaders can influence more helpful
attitudes. We’ll explore leadership strategies and techniques to
shift worker attitudes, and also dive into the organisational processes
that can contribute to unhelpful attitudes within the business.
- Explore the impact of unhelpful attitudes around risk assessment processes on safety performance
- Explore how to improve organisational processes and leader behaviour to influence worker attitudes towards risk assessments
