Applying the Theory of Planned Behavior in Work Safety

One thing that TPB makes clear is that merely providing information about safety is NOT going to work. You should try to address the beliefs, attitudes and subjective norms if you want to achieve an intention to change the behavior. On top of giving information about safer working.

Applying the Theory of Planned Behavior at Work

The most effective way of implementing a safety culture in the work place is to bring all the stakeholders involved in the workplace together to identify the reasons why safety is not being taken seriously.
In my experience it's imperative that the employees are consulted throughout the process. This gives them ownership of the problems that they and the company face on a daily basis. A communication process through the implementation of policies, procedures and training will change the behaviour of both parties.
