Enhancing Safety Outcomes in Your Organization: The Advantages of Shifting from Reactive to Proactive Behavior-based Safety (BBS)

Whitepaper | August, 2023

The most common source of workplace injuries or accidents is ‘human error.’

For whatever reason, employees and workers perform high-risk tasks without taking the necessary precautions. Sometimes, they perform tasks a certain way, unmindful of the risks involved. For instance, they may have walked around the shop floor without wearing a helmet in certain areas because it was too hot. But that should be avoided so that their safety is not put at risk.

A habit change needs to happen, and the question is how do we bring that to every worker in the organization? Can we build a culture wherein every worker, every employee across the organization thinks about the risks involved, worries about the safety of themselves, their colleagues, and their workplace, takes necessary control measures, and then performs the task?

The first step to making this happen is to identify and document unsafe acts and subsequent “behavior changes” needed.

Can we ensure the worker without the helmet realizes the risks, and changes this habit? This is where Behavior-based Safety (BBS) comes in.

In this whitepaper, we talk about key best practices for Behavior-based Safety (BBS) and how to leverage the power of digital transformation and automation to eliminate risky worker behaviors.

In this whitepaper, we will also explore:

  • Why curbing unsafe acts and behaviors must become #1 priority
  • Common causes for unsafe behaviors
  • 4 key steps for behavior-based safety (BBS)
  • Leveraging technology to inculcate safe behavior and improve safety management outcomes
