Stimulation of voluntary motivation toward safety management activities: Activity inactivation by mannerism

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingConference contribution


Currently, high-risk organizations are implementing various safety management activities such as collecting incidents and pointing and calling. However, activity mannerisms can reduce the motivation of organization members. In psychology, workers’ voluntary motivations are interpreted as a type of intrinsic motivation. One theory posits that intrinsic motivation is increased through internal specifics and adequate gaps in emotion, cognition, and handling ability of the object. We apply this theory to a method that maintains motivation in safety management activities by continuously providing safety-related information at suitable intervals. The pluralistic specific (internal specific) of each worker at a specific time is predetermined by appropriate methods.
