Behavioral science approaches show promise for improving worker safety performance. In particular, the use of positive reinforcement to increase specific safe work patterns appears to be quite effective. Nevertheless, a number of methodological and procedural problems can arise when using these techniques in industry that may hinder their effectiveness. Further efforts should be aimed at tailoring these approaches for industrial use so that such procedural problems can be avoided.
