Behavioral Based Safety, also known as BBS, is a process that informs management and employees of the overall safety of the workplace. BBS is intended to focus workers’ attention on their own and their peers’ daily safety behavior.
During BBS observations, an observer watches an employee perform a task and records safe and unsafe behaviors, in addition to noting safe and unsafe workplace conditions. The observer then shares the findings with the worker and provides feedback. Discussing the ways in which employees can perform their tasks in a safer manner helps workers and observers to become more aware of their behavior.
A company must apply such a strategy at every level in order to benefit from it. IndustrySafe safety management software is the perfect solution for organizations that want to successfully implement BBS in the workplace.
