- Intervention: focus on the behaviours of employees, and determine how to improve these behaviours.
- Identify what can be applied externally to improve the behaviours to achieve your desired effect.
- Use interventions to create new behaviours. For example if eye safety is your goal, hang signs, update worn down signs, have employees read and sign a statement that highlights eye safety hazards and preventative methods.
- Focus on how applying your desired methods will benefit the user at the end of the day.
- Reinforce interventions to wherever possible in appropriate areas. Don't have just one area where eye protection is available, make it available at multiple entrances.
- Use theories to inform. Don't limit information, spread the word with signage, and reaffirm safety at appropriate meetings. Implement monthly quizzes and testing and reward with a point system that leads employees to a goal they can strive towards.
- Intervene with employees. Discuss and learn about their feelings about how effective a plan is for them, and how to improve it going forward. Planned safety meetings and reviews are ideal times to start.
