Technical Seminar on Behavioural Based Safety
More and more we need to look at new approaches to achieving safe and healthy workplaces, we need to apply the learning from the many years of analyses of accidents and ill health because this will contribute to future prevention strategies and activities. Behaviour-Based Safety (BBS) is an approach that we believe can be applied successfully; it is gaining more interest across industry sectors globally and has the great advantage of needing the involvement of the individual employee, in addition of course, to employer commitment. BBS is closely linked to company culture and values and, most importantly, when it works, it is an excellent tool to improve safety performance in the workplace.
Behaviour-Based Safety (BBS) is often described as a bottom-up approach (frontline employees), with top-down support from safety leaders. A behaviour-based safety approach promotes interventions that are people-focused and often incorporate one-to-one or group observations of employees performing routine work tasks, setting goals carefully and giving timely feedback on safety-related behaviour, coaching and mentoring. The initiatives have a proactive focus, encouraging individuals and their work groups to consider the potential for incident involvement, (accidents) and to assess their own behaviour as safe or unsafe always, no matter what.
