Why do people do things they know they shouldn’t do.
A behavioural safety discussion based around the court case of R v Fresha’s bakery where 2 men died inside an oven. We will talk about the reasons and consequences of the actions that lead to these men taking a decision to do something that they knew they shouldn’t do. These reasons are usually the same regardless of the nature of the work.
