Behavioural Safety in Mining

Adopting a behaviour based safety programme further protects a company’s most valuable resource – its employees – whilst having a positive impact on productivity.  As injuries decrease, employee morale increases which allows more cooperation and efficiency throughout the company.  Instead of focusing on accidents, failure and punishment, employees focus on safe behaviours and work toward their own safety goals.
