About Biosafety Culture
Instructor: Jan Piet Tijssen & Cathy Bakker
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.
