Is Behavior-based Safety Right For Your Organization? [Video]

Posted by ProcessMAP on January 5, 2017

You may have heard it before, but what's the real idea behind behavior-based safety—and is it right for your business?

Rather than focus only on making physical conditions in a workplace safer, a well-functioning B-B-S program seeks to identify unsafe employee habits that contribute to incidents and accidents on the job. After answering who, what, when, where, understanding the origin, safety managers must then analyze behavior, promote change where needed and measure effectiveness.

How can you get started? Strong B-B-S programs turn observational data into actionable insights. That's where having the right health and safety management system comes into play, equipping safety managers to identify, correct and mitigate unsafe behaviors.

Has your company implemented a behavior-based safety system recently? Let us know how it's going so far by leaving a comment below.
