Some people readily adopt an organization's safety culture without questioning it, even to the point of internalizing it for themselves. Others tend to challenge the parts that don’t make sense to them, or outright rebel against it altogether! A lot of the differences we observe in how people respond to safety culture and safety communication has to do with their temperaments. Understanding these differences can aid our ability to lead people and motivate them toward a stronger safety culture.

Learning Objectives:
Identify the various temperament types of employees and how they might respond to safety communication
Explain how to predict why and how people might behave the way they do in a safety culture based on their temperament
Describe how to communicate the safety culture in ways that more effectively appeal to each temperament type
