Behavior-Based Safety: Why You Should Rethink Your Approach


Duration:60 minutes


Behavior-based safety’s initial allure was due, in part, to its simplistic message: since workers already know the right way to do things, preventing injuries is simply a matter of reminding them to do it the right way. We know now that the reason why people do the things they do is much more nuanced. As a result, a program once heralded as a special elixir to heal all safety program wounds is now falling out of favor with EHS professionals, who cite it as nothing more than a “blame the worker” approach that erodes trust and damages safety culture. 

Behavior-based safety isn’t about checklists, or audits or creating more rules. It’s about creating a culture of safety where we take interest and look out for others to ensure they go home without harm, everyday.  

During this webinar, you will learn:

  • The main challenges with traditional behavior-based-safety (BBS) approaches
  • The principles of human error and why people choose to take risks at work
  • Ways you can re-design your company’s BBS program to build greater trust and cooperation
  • How technology can help you optimize your BBS data to support safety culture excellence
