Making sure operatives recognise the importance of their own safety

Behavioural safety attitudes need to change to prevent accidents and to improve safety standards on site.

All members of the workforce need to think about what they are going to do and how this will impact upon others before they act.

By encouraging safety awareness and highlighting the importance of safety on site, this should help to minimise accidents, incidents and near misses.

An example of how sites have encouraged a continuous safety culture, based on operatives’ personal importance, include:

  • All operatives were asked to provide a photo of something that is important to them, and a reason why they want to return home at the end of each day;
  • These were placed at the site entrance so that all operatives saw these on the way onto site everyday, to reinforce the importance of personal safety.
