Video Descriptions

Behavior Modification

#620 – PRACTICAL BEHAVIOR-BASED SAFETY: AN INTRODUCTION

After an interesting cab ride to the convention center, Dr. E. Scott Geller gives a lecture style presentation to the gathered audience on behavior-based safety. Emphasis is placed on the principle of improving safety through behavior and attitude requires interdependence and feedback. Seven basic principles are covered including: 1) focus on observable behavior, 2) look for external factors, 3) direct behavior with activators and motivate with consequences, 4) focus on positive consequences, 5) apply the scientific method to improve intervention, 6) use theory to integrate information and 7) design interventions with consideration of internal feelings and attitudes. A basic scientific method called DO IT — Define, Observe, Intervene and Test is reviewed. Ten axioms to follow to continuously improve safety are defined and discussed.
