Behaviour is the most important element of safety. The behaviour of an individual is based on the personality, attitudes, beliefs, and values that he or she has been exposed to. If a person has been treated badly in the past, then he or she may have certain feelings towards others that could affect his or her behaviour in a negative way. This can lead to accidents and injuries.
Behavior Based Safety Implementation is an approach to safety that considers the behavior of people in work environments. It focuses on how people perform tasks, rather than focusing on the tools or equipment used to perform those tasks. This approach has been used for many years in industries such as construction, manufacturing and aviation, but it has recently been taken up by other sectors as well.
There are many factors that can influence behavior-based safety. These include:
- People-related factors: These include personality traits such as shyness, introversion, or extroversion. They also include specific skills such as being able to read maps clearly or driving safely on the road.
- Environment-related factors: these include weather conditions such as icy roads or foggy nights; types of buildings like old buildings which may not be well maintained; types of vehicles like motorcycles which may be difficult for older drivers to operate safely; types of machinery such as heavy machinery which may cause injury if used incorrectly; types of equipment like heavy machinery which could cause injury if used incorrectly; and so on.
- The factors that influence corporate culture. This includes organizational structure, leadership style, and communication patterns.
- The factors that influence organizational structure. These include organizational goal(s), strategies for achieving those goals, and how they are implemented (e.g., by training).
- The factors that influence leadership style. These include the leader’s experience level; their willingness to delegate authority; their skill at motivating others; their ability to encourage creativity in others; their ability to motivate themselves; and their ability to deal with difficult situations or crises in an effective manner.
