Behavior-Based Safety (BBS) seems to be a topic that cannot distance itself from controversy. While many organizations are still adopting the approach as a tool to create stronger safety cultures, other EHS professionals are turning away.
Why? We believe it’s because somewhere along the way, BBS became corrupted. But the data is clear: companies able to promote and sustain safe behaviors in turn influence the attitudes and beliefs that are essential to build best-in-class safety cultures. So how should organizations rethink their Behavior-Based Safety programs to enable them to reach operational and safety excellence?
We teamed up with Dr. Andrew Sharman from RMS Switzerland to answer 9 of the most frequently asked questions about behavior-based safety.
