Strengthening Behavior-Based Safety, Human Performance and Management Systems with Visual Literacy
Viewing and thinking about safety issues more deliberately and in a wider context are keys to improving workplace safety performance.
Visual Literacy improves our observation skills crucial to identifying hazardous conditions and incident causal factors. Beyond improving visual acuity, it develops critical thinking – What do you see? What does it mean? What do you do about it?
In this white paper, we will discuss how these questions and Visual Literacy can be applied to three important areas of occupational safety and health: behavior-based safety (BBS), human performance, and the components of occupational safety and health management systems.
