Behavioural Safety Leadership in construction: new dates available

01 April 2022

​The Jersey Safety Council (JSC) has, in co-operation with seven leading construction companies in Jersey, developed and launched a key behavioural safety programme for the construction sector. 

The target is that all contractors working on sites run by the seven construction companies will have participated in this change programme by the end of 2022.  

How leaders behave in a workplace has a tremendous impact on the safety performance of the company, the well-being of colleagues and the health and well-being of the individual and their families.  It is estimated that there are around 1 million unsafe behaviours every year associated with construction activities in Jersey.  Reducing at-risk behaviours will reduce the number of near misses, minor injuries, lost workday cases and serious accidents. This can be achieved by taking a company’s health and safety management system and using it in a culture that supports safe behaviours and challenges unsafe acts.

The Health and Safety Inspectorate fully endorses both the objectives of the programme and the target for 2022.

Programme objectives

  • to introduce the benefits of a strong behavioural safety leadership culture to the construction sector
  • to explain to construction leaders how behavioural safety leadership builds on existing safety management systems
  • to develop an understanding of personal behavioural safety leadership responsibilities, no matter your position in the company
  • to give participants a toolset to practise behavioural safety leadership in the workplace

The programme comprises a series of workshops/engagements specifically tailored for the various leadership levels and workers in the construction sector. The programme is designed to start with the top management and then be cascaded down through the organisation.
