Many mature behavioral safety programs have begun to focus on workforce wellness as well as safety. Is wellness a state of being or a set of behaviors? Both! Wellness relies on two distinct classes of behavior known as respondents and operants who work together with our neurology to produce agitation or bliss (your choice). Because wellness is governed by behavior our behavioral safety programs can indeed reinforce and condition wellness. Peace out.
