Behaving Safely in the Laboratory: Understanding the Complexities of Building and Sustaining a Culture of Safety is a 2-hour webinar session for three days. The webinar will be offered Monday, April 3; Wednesday, April 5 and Friday, April 7, 2017. Millions of dollars on engineering. Thousands of dollars on PPE. Hundreds of hours spent writing SOPs – and in one instant all of these controls can be negated with one inappropriate behavior. Behavior is the bridge between written plans and desired outcomes. But what does it take to behave safely? Day 1 will focus on what it takes for an individual to behave safely – as behavior requires five critical items – and without these items – sustained behavior cannot occur. Day 2 will focus on motivating behavior – the differences between leadership and management – and the motivating factors which are extrinsic, systemic, and intrinsic. Day 3 will focus on building and sustaining a ONE SAFE culture – blending the efforts of the workforce, leadership, and safety officials.
