Optimize your safety culture

SafetyDNA® is Talogy’s proven safety development solution — built to optimize safety within your organization. The solution consists of a comprehensive suite of online and live tools that helps organizations understand the psychological components of their workers’ safety behaviors and develop a safer workforce.

Decades of research on workplace injuries reveal that there are four personal factors that consistently relate to safety behavior and the likelihood of being injured at work. These factors are not uniformly distributed across people. As a result, everyone has a unique safety profile. We refer to this unique profile as a person’s SafetyDNA.

SafetyDNA explores four critical factors:

  • Control: The extent to which you believe you control your actions and emotions
  • Awareness: How much you see and remember your surroundings, especially when doing multiple tasks
  • Rules: The degree to which you’re inclined to follow versus bend rules
  • Caution: The level of discomfort you feel with risk-taking

Develop safer leaders

The SafetyDNA® for Leaders Development Program is designed to help supervisors understand and leverage the psychological factors that are vital to strong leadership in environments where safety is a key responsibility.

SafetyDNA® for Leaders is filled with interactive simulations, exercises, and activities that reveal the leader’s unique safety leadership profile. The core of the development solution is the online SafetyDNA® for Leaders assessment. This 90-minute assessment looks to understand the participant’s safety leadership profiles, based on Talogy’s LEAD model:

  • Lays out a vision: Clear, personal, and motivating
  • Embraces change: Drives change by involving others
  • Acts as coach: Actively listens and provides feedback
  • Demonstrates credibility: Walks the talk, holds everyone accountable

SafetyDNA helps you: 

  • Hire safer employees
  • Develop effective and committed safety leaders
  • Provide employees with targeted coaching to improve safety behaviors
  • Build a stronger and more sustainable safety culture
  • Reduce safety incidents and prevent serious injuries and fatalities
