  In order to change the behavior you need to create a need. Hard task when the danger is not perceived and when the event [i.e. the work accident] has not yet occurred. Hard task when safety training takes place in a classroom and not at the work site.

  PPE is not sufficient: it protects the workers from certain [material] risks but not from those related to diversity, alcohol/substance abuse, stress. Perhaps for these risks it is the individual’s experience, shared with the co-workers, which can make the difference and ultimately protect us.

  As a consequence, the concept of MPE© - Mental Protective Equipment was created by our group with the aim to identify that sort of sharing that could be implemented among co-workers through their work experiences. Sharing such knowledge represents the key to protect the workers from all the pathologies they incur in spite of using PPE, attending classroom training and having a complete prevention system in place
