Background

How leaders behave in a workplace has a tremendous impact on the safety performance of the company, the well-being of colleagues and the health & well-being of the individual and their families.  It is estimated that there are around 1 million unsafe behaviours every year associated with construction activities in Jersey.  Reducing at-risk behaviours will reduce the number of near misses, minor injuries, lost workday cases and fatalities.  This can be achieved by taking a company’s health and safety management system (with its procedures and processes) and using it in a culture that supports safe behaviours and challenges unsafe acts.

The Behavioural Safety Leadership programme has been developed by the Jersey Safety Council in co-operation with seven leading construction companies in Jersey.  The objectives of the programme are endorsed by the Health & Safety Inspectorate.

Programme Objectives

  • To introduce the benefits of a strong behavioural safety leadership culture to the construction sector
  • To explain to construction leaders how behavioural safety leadership builds on existing safety management systems
  • To develop an understanding of your personal behavioural safety leadership responsibilities, no matter your position in the company
  • To give participants a toolset to practise behavioural safety leadership in the workplace

Programme Structure

The programme comprises a series of workshops/engagements specifically tailored for the various leadership levels and workers in the construction sector. The programme is designed to start with the top management and then be cascaded down through the organisation.
