Episode 12: How are you feeling? How emotions can make safety lessons more memorable

Adam visits UK Construction Week at the Excel Centre in London to talk to people in the industry about what safety means to them and how our emotions impact on our behaviour in the workplace and how we absorb and act on important safety lessons.

Paul, a paver ground worker, believes there should be more care and consideration on site; Sarah Meek, Managing Director of the mental health charity Mates in Mind, thinks that when people connect emotionally in safety training, they engage better; and Denise Farquharson, Safety Development and Culture Engagement Officer for HS2, advocates for emotional intelligence as a critical safety skill.
