This workshop examined why people break the rules and what you can do about it, using a state of the art model – Meeting Expectations. This model not only represents the most recent thinking about non-compliance, but also can be integrated into a model for Safety leadership. In particular the workshop explored the roles and responsibilities of workers, supervisors and management.
