Many workplace accidents are attributed to behavioral-based factors, such as not wearing the proper PPE or not observing good housekeeping. The injuries that result from such behaviors cost the employer thousands of dollars through loss of time accidents, poor production, and OSHA fines. A tool for creating a bottom-up system of employee driven safety culture is the Behavioral Based Safety system (BBS). This system is built to complement your other work efforts such as the job hazard analysis, safety audits, and a comprehensive safety training program. By including BBS into your existing system, the employer can observe and correct at risk behavior in a minimal confrontational approach. The BBS is a kin to coaching your workers to safer work practices, through involvement and active listening.
