537  Cognitive-Behavioral Safety: How Stages of Change Influence Safety Behaviors

As human beings, we all go through predictable stages when faced with making change. This session will discuss the importance of understanding the human change process in efforts to increase safe behaviors and improve safety cultures. For organizations to realistically reach safety goals of zero harm, engaging employees at their particular stage of change is vital. Targeting interventions to each stage of change harnesses internal motivations for individuals and will increase the likelihood of sustainable behavior change. Practical applications will be shared regarding how to leverage stages of change toward high safety performance.
