Maintaining workplace safety depends on recognizing and averting incidents before they happen. Unsafe behavior is a major contributor to accidents and injuries, which reduces productivity, raises the number of worker compensation claims, and compromises workplace safety. Injury can be avoided, though, if the underlying behavior can be curbed. An efficient program that emphasizes behavioral-based safety is the key to stopping unsafe behavior.
Behavior-based safety is a technique for reducing human error and improving workplace safety by observing and evaluating employee behavior while they work.
The most difficult aspect of implementing a safety observation program is the change management effort required to influence everyone’s way of thinking throughout the organization, from frontline workers to the C-suite. We must overcome our innate tendency to seek flaws or negative outcomes. The goal of behavioral-based safety is to actively seek out and reward positive behaviors.
