14-10-2021 Biosafety Culture

This course intends to inspire you. To convince you that safety not only pays (for you and the company), but also is fun and moreover a serious profession. 

A profession that involves many areas of knowledge and a multitude of skills, amongst others those dealing with human behaviour.

The course will get you thinking about how to convince and motivate others. Co-workers but also, not in the last place, the management. Not just words and rulings, but setting the example is of utmost importance.

It’s about how to influence behaviour, when to apply punishment or reward, how to make the safe way the most attractive and apart from preventing accidents, also to learn from near misses and get to the root causes.

Cathy is a biosafety professional and Jan-Piet is a former inspector. Roles that are not conflicting but rather support each other. Together with you we hope to further explore this difficult subject of human behaviour in relation to biosafety.

The COVID-19 pandemic increased the public’s familiarity with the word ‘epidemiology’ to a unparalleled during previous public health events. 

Epidemiology is one of the scientific disciplines of public health with sound methods of scientific inquiry at its foundation. It is essential to the fight against any disease. Its central paradigm is that analysis of population patterns of disease, particularly by linking these to exposure variables (risk factors), provides understanding of their causes. Epidemiology is useful in other ways, including preventing and controlling disease in populations and guiding health and health-care policy and planning.
