In November, ASSP Programs Chair Sharon Lipinski will be presenting “Harnessing the Power of Habit.”

If you’ve been disappointed in the results of your safety training then you know the painful truth that knowing is not enough. Employees may know exactly what to do to avoid accidents. They may even want to do it. But they don’t do it. Even the best intentions don’t translate into results you can count on when safety is on the line. The most effective way to change how your employees typically think, respond, or act is to transform it from a conscious act into an unconscious act. In other words, make it a habit. 

In this session, attendees discover why employees don’t follow the safety training their employers have provided, what habits are, why they’re so powerful, and how safety managers can leverage cutting edge neural science research to harness the power of habit to improve the effectiveness of their existing safety training. But habit is a double edged sword and can sometimes cause accidents. Attendees will get a key strategy for neutralizing habit and familiarity on the job as it’s happening, so employees can use habit when it will keep them safe but avoid habit when it’s dangerous. If you’re going to put behaviors on autopilot, you want to make sure they are the right behaviors. This session will also share the 7 habits of the safest workplaces that protect your people and your bottom line. 

Tired of saying the same thing to your employees? You’ll leave this session understanding why people do what they do and how to change it.
