We know that rules and regulations along with policies and procedures are essential for running an efficient, productive, and safe organization. But, when was the last time a rule policy reminded someone that their child was waiting for them to get home? Or, when has a procedure brought to mind images of what it would be like to deliver devastating news to the spouse of someone injured on the job?
Research shows that policies alone are not enough to change behavior and transform a safety culture.
