Before you being rolling out your Behavior-Based Safety Observation program, you should consider the following questions. Determining the answers to these questions will ensure a flawless rollout and save time and headaches down the road.
The almost century-long history of Behavior-based safety began with research conducted by Herbert William Heinrich in the early thirties. Mr.Heinrich worked for Traveler’s Insurance Company in the early thirties. He reported that roughly 90% of all accidents, injuries, and illnesses were the result of what he called “worker errors.”*
Behavior Based Safety Observation programs (or BBSOs) have a 50 year track record of helping staff identify at-risk behavior and helping build safety-first work cultures. Many companies struggle with their BBSO programs due to poor employee adoption, tedious paper-based processes, and difficulty viewing trends in their data. Today we will highlight some best practices from a safety leader who has made their facility safer with BBSO.
Michael is the HSE manager working in a medium-sized factory in New Jersey. They implemented their own BBSO program, rolling out a paper-based system.
Instructions, customer stories and best practices on setting up and
managing an effective BBSO program to help you avoid over 90% of
