Title: The Role of Behavioral Based Safety within Organisations
Time: 64 minutes
Human behaviours have always been a major cause of workplace incidents and accidents throughout the years. When it comes to monitoring critical and at-risk behaviours at work, behavioural based safety programs have shown to be processes that could support, reveal and assess overall safety cultures and practices within an organisation.
Established as a way to enhance working practices in industrial settings, Behavioural Based Safety (BBS) strives to focus workers attention on their own and their peer’s daily safety behaviours. In short, most BBS programs mandate that management and employees alike consistently focus their attentions and actions on their own daily behaviour in order to keep themselves, their colleagues and their operations safe.

- What are Behavioural Based Safety programs
- Importance of understanding that BBS programs must work hand in hand with already established health and safety practices
