Learning & Behavioural Change


The Accord sees behavioural change at all levels as a key priority in improving safety performance. This is a mature state for any industry to achieve and is not arrived at though any easy or quick means. We wish to research and develop a longer term Behavioural Change Action Plan. Target is to cover all of the forest  industry sector.
