BBS (Behaviour Based Safety)

Behaviour Based Safety


Behaviour Based Safety course will provide insight into current knowledge of human error and how it can be reduced. The course focuses on human errors related to undesired behaviours (habits), what causes these, and how to effectively remedy these. You will learn in general what leads to negative behaviour and how to prevent or correct these behaviours. You will learn specific approaches/tools you can put to use in your facilities for controlling behaviours/habits on a day-to-day basis. But to keep the topic of habits/behaviours in perspective, the course also includes a brief overview of all aspects of controlling human error, not just those related to behaviours or habits.

To be successful a BBS program must include all employees, from the CEO to the front line workers including hourly, salary, union employees, contractors and sub-contractors. To achieve changes in behavior, a change in policy, procedures and/or systems most assuredly will also need some change. Those changes cannot be done without buy-in and support from all involved in making those decisions.
