Course overview

Human behavior is a funny thing. Did you know that 70% of our daily activities are carried out with our brains on autopilot? Learned behavior happens through repetition. So, when you do something over and over, your brain takes a rest, because it thinks it’s got everything completely under control. 

But even though the way your brain has learned to do something might be functional, it also might not be the safest way to do it. In the workplace, that could cause problems, so it needs to be recognized and controlled. Behavioral safety is a way to do just that, through identifying these learned behaviors, and working to retrain the brain to carry out tasks more safely.
