Module 1 - Safety Leadership

What is the impact of leadership and culture? In this module we explore this very thing and get an understanding of the variety of leadership styles, including your own! Also, lets challenge the status quo and find out how we can take different approaches.

Module 2 - Avoiding Failure or Creating Excellence

Here we challenge the theory that traditional Safety courses give you around accident causation – think Swiss Cheese and Root Cause Analysis. Let’s challenge ourselves to think this through differently because things don’t always happen sequentially, especially where people are involved.

Module 3 - Key Drivers of Behaviour

What is the relationship between our thoughts, feelings, actions and performance? In this module we get to learn about different behavioural change models to better understand human behaviour as a whole.

Module 4 - Behavioural Science Relating to Safety Performance

Here we introduce on 3 key steps – Purpose, Autonomy and Mastery and the positive influence that this has on people and their performance in the workplace.

Module 5 - ABC Analysis

Creating improved behaviours by examining the core principles. This section is all about shifting mindsets.

Module 6 - Goal Setting

Traditional target setting based on lagging indicators do not always work. Here we look at creating goals that initiate change and benefits that are both scalable and sustainable.

All of our online learning courses have been developed to give the best learning experience on a desktop or laptop computer, but some of them can now be accessed on tablets, like the iPad or Samsung Galaxy Tab. There are a wide range of tablets on the market and although the courses should work on all of them, to get the best mobile experience we recommend a few things:

  • A minimum screen resolution of 1024 x 600, with a recommended screen resolution of 1024 x 768 or higher.
  • Generally the standard web browser is the best one to use, so on an iPad, for example, use Safari. You may also need to change a setting in the browser to allow cookies from 3rd parties (you definitely will with Safari).
  • The courses are accessed most easily when connected to Wi-Fi rather than mobile data networks. If you do access via a mobile data network please note that you may be charged by your service provider, depending on your contract.

The courses are best viewed in landscape but on occasion you might need to turn to portrait, to close a pop-up for example.
