Humans are complex. That’s why it’s important to understand the unique roles that psychology, company leadership and mental health all play in jobsite safety.
We know that you’re working hard to protect your team. You know the regulations, you have safety protocols, safe equipment and stand up meetings each morning. But there’s more to workplace safety than well-planned processes and strong materials.
It starts with understanding people.
Employee behavior is the biggest factor in workplace safety.
A company’s lack of safety protocols or unsafe jobsite conditions isn’t what leads to most accidents; 90% of recordable safety incidents are caused by people taking unnecessary risks.
Why does this happen, despite everyone’s best intentions? Because employees are human, with human issues like distractions, conflicting priorities, stress, mental health struggles and fatigue.
When you understand and recognize the underlying issues that are impacting your people, you can proactively address them.
