As behavioural insights (BI) become more widely used, countries are looking to expand the application of the methodology to new frontiers of policy making. This report tests behaviourally informed solutions to complex policy problems in the fields of competition, consumer protection, energy consumption and safety through a variety of theoretical and experimental approaches. The results give policy makers new ideas for tackling policy problems related to individual behaviour, as well as for changing the behaviour of organisations.

This chapter examines how regulatory policymakers can foster elements of a strong culture of safety in the energy sector. It presents the results of an online experiment with regulators and regulated entities in Canada, Ireland, Mexico and Oman that tests the effects of messenger, feedback and social norms on changing behaviours around safety.
