Abstract: Safety in the workplace has received an increasing amount of attention for over 50 years. Approaches to improving safety have focused primarily on extrinsic drivers such as engineering safer work environments, training, and policies. These efforts have reduced injuries and reportable incidents. Yet, progress toward industry's stated goal of zero incidents has stalled. This paper explores an approach to creating a safer work environment using intrinsic drivers instead of compliance oriented behaviors. The Theory of Planned Behavior (Ajzen, 1985) is employed to show that moral maturity and emotional intelligence can act as intrinsic drivers, positively influencing safety attitudes and behavior.
