How Nudge Theory Can Reduce Hand Injuries: A Nudge Led Approach to Hand Safety — May 8, 2024


Ever found yourself wondering why workers have absent minded accidents?

 

It turns out our brains are engineered to optimize efficiency and respond swiftly. Most of our decisions aren't the result of careful, rational thought. Instead, 90% or more of our decisions are driven by instinct. While this might be beneficial in saving time or effort, it doesn't always result in the wisest decisions regarding our safety.

 

Because of this, the environment and context in which we're making safety decisions plays a tremendous role in shaping our actions. This is good news! As Superior Glove has learned in their work with behavioral experts, we can reduce and eliminate injuries with tiny tweaks in workers’ surroundings—"nudges" that can sway decisions and spark positive behavior.

 

In this webinar, Superior Glove’s Sarah Gibson and Aaron Harroch explain what nudge theory is and how to apply it to create a safer workplace that can change worker behavior.

 

What “nudging” is and how it can be used to reduce or eliminate hand injuries

How to assess work environments for place to institute nudges

Practical examples that can be implemented

What pitfalls to avoid when creating nudges
