Occupational Health and Safety
Organizations are increasingly aware of ensuring a safe work environment free from occupational injuries and fatalities, as they add no value to productivity. Thus, safety remains a concern for every organization and any workplace incident yields in unreliable workflow.The National Safety Council’s report shows that most illnesses and injuries in the workplace are due to human behavior. This reflects the importance of employee behavior in attaining improved safety standards, which is feasible through behavior-based safety interventions. In this regard, the emphasis is on behavior-based safety, which aims to improve safety through integration of behavioral science and organizational principles with safety management to reduce incidences of injury.
