Behavior-Based Safety: The Controversy Continues


5/17/18 12:00 pm to 5/17/18 1:00 pm CDT

Event Description

Behavior-Based Safety (BBS) is viewed as a way to create a safety partnership between management and employees that helps focus attention and action on daily safety behavior to ensure a safe workforce. While BBS has been useful in some companies, not everyone agrees on its effectiveness or value. During this lively discussion, we will speak to the pros, cons and alternatives to BBS programs.

You will learn:

  • How behavior-based safety is used and the different methodologies
  • The value BBS can bring to your safety program
  • The alternatives to BBS and how to decide which methodology is best for your organization
  • What technology can do to strengthen BBS program adoption and improve your safety culture
