||This book describes behaviour modification and explains how it may be applied to industrial safety. Part 1 examines human caused accidents, the influence of the work environment, employee characteristics, and human error, and describes traditional behaviour change concepts such as training and motivating. Part 2 provides an alternative approach to behaviour modification in terms of elimination of unwanted behaviour, learning of new responses and application of reinforcement schedules. Part 3 explains how to install a system of safe behaviour reinforcement and results to be expected. Details are given of the application of this approach in various industries, and the results achieved.
