Human Factors and Behavioural Safety
Add to cart
US$ 57.95
Accidents and cases of occupational ill-health are commonly associated with aspects of human behaviour and the potential for human error. Human Factors and Behavioural Safety is not written for psychologists, but instead gives health and safety professionals and students a broad overview of human factors and those aspects of human behaviour which have a direct effect on health and safety performance within organisations.

Particular attention is paid to:
* the role of the organisation in promoting safe behaviour
* the sensory and perceptual processes of people
* behavioural factors, such as attitude, motivation and personality
* the process of attitude change
* theories of personal risk taking and accident * the importance of good communication, change management and stress management
