Behavior-Based Safety: Strategies For Achieving Maximum Engagement In Your Accident Prevention Program

Webinar: ID# 1023538
Recorded On-Demand
About This Course:
As a tool for reducing accidents, behavioral based safety programs (BBS) have proven to be very successful. In fact, BBS has been a significant approach in workplace safety for several decades.

It starts with the idea that any accidental injury at work has an immediate cause that is directly and immediately related either to unsafe conditions or unsafe behaviors. These identified behaviors can then be used for programmed observations, feedback, and program improvement.

The key to a successful process, however, requires that a number of critical factors be included and incorporated into the development of the BBS process as well as the implementation and maintenance phases.

Join us to learn methods to help your BBS process thrive and reduce accidents. Seasoned safety professional and BBS expert Joe Keenan of C Spire will give you the insights he’s shared with hundreds of companies as he assisted in the design and implementation of their world-class BBS programs.
