Think about defining your safety culture. How would you do this, and what would it be? Now think about when your people are taught new safety skills. Ever wondered why they aren’t uniformly applied resulting in different safety outcomes? And what about culture? Why is this so difficult to change within an organisation? The answers to these questions are all connected and they relate to belief definition. To achieve zero harm, we need the ability to sustain high-level safety performance. But zero harm is a difficult challenge for workers and many workers just don’t believe it’s possible.  For most people, the skills they learn are irrelevant. What they believe and feel about what they learn comes first. Human behaviour is a function of belief.  People bring a wide range of beliefs to the workplace. Because these beliefs strongly influence their behaviour, belief definition is an integral part of any safety culture. The challenge lies in aligning these beliefs so they are well defined and support the high-performance outcomes demanded in today’s workplace.  This session will explore how defining shared safety values and beliefs and exercising mindfulness can help create a zero harm safety culture.
