Learn the importance of behavior-based safety in an effort to achieve the ideal safety culture in your workplace. In the past, organizations have focused on improving safety by addressing the work environment, removing or mitigating hazards, providing better tools and equipment, and enforcing safety-related rules and regulations. These are all approaches that, understandably, have worked well at improving safety. But many organizations have reached an injury-rate plateau, finding that relying primarily on these approaches without taking a more comprehensive view of safety produces only marginal gains. Minimizing or controlling environmental hazards is certainly a necessary precondition for an ideal safety culture, but it is not enough. We need to consider how safety is supported through the interaction of equipment, facilities, procedures, and people, and focus on the factors that influence our behavior. Behavior-based safety (BBS) effectively addresses these interactions.
