What is Brain Based Safety?
Brain Based Safety aims to promote safety in organizations through safe behavior. It is based on recent knowledge of the brain. It explains how safe behavior arises, why we do or don’t do things and how this is influenced. The core message is that the basis of safe behavior is innate. It is literally in our DNA. This base was very effective for a long time.
However, the world has changed drastically in a short time. Industrialization has brought us new and greater dangers. The brain is not set up for this. That is why we must teach people to deal with risks in a different way. Brain Based Safety is a philosophy that teaches people to deal with the current dangers of work. It also provides tools for creating an environment that encourages safe working.
