BBS is one of the principal strategies that focus on mitigating the risks involved with Behaviors through a Behavioral Approach.

With the Behavioral-Based Safety (BBS) process, you can support your organization in using positive reinforcement to change unsafe individual behaviors and reinforce safe behaviors. As each employee ensures the security of himself and his coworkers, a robust workplace safety culture is often achieved. This will not only keep your workers safe, but it can also lead to higher profits and happier employees.

BBS helps to extend safety awareness and improve safety practices. First, by observing worker behavior, managers can use workflow design and task analysis to evaluate and identify mechanical, physical, and ergonomic hazards of job duties. Additionally, when workers are held accountable for their own behavior, engagement improves, and critical thinking and decision-making skills increase.

The Safety Perception Survey

Some employers are beginning to involve employees more directly in the planning and development of their safety programs. A powerful tool that employers can utilize to interact with their employees is the safety perception survey. A safety perception survey provides a quantitative measure of how employees feel about current safety policies and procedures and gives them a chance to share their recommendations for improvement.
