5 Tips for a Better BBS Program

5 Tips for a Better BBS Program

Behavior Based Safety (BBS) is a process centered around the one thing that will never be excluded from workplace safety incidents – people. Behavior Based Safety focuses people’s attention and actions on the daily safety behavior of themselves and those around them. It is the goal of any BBS program to observe what people do, but more importantly, why they do it. Here are 5 key elements to make your BBS program succeed:

  1. 100% Buy-in – Everyone Has Got to be on Board. The entire workplace needs to be trained in two major areas. First, they need to know how to observe behaviors and find unsafe actions. Then they need to learn to communicate these observations in a non-confrontational way.
  1. Support Your Program with the Right Technology. No matter the scale, a corporate-wide safety initiative needs to be backed by the right tech. Finding the software is easy, but it’s important to have your entire workforce trained.
  1. Measure the Cause, Not Just the Symptoms. Many safety programs are only measured on performance. A Behavior Based Safety Program can find the underlying motives behind potentially unsafe actions and therefore move to reduce or eliminate them completely.
  1. Create Safety Leaders, not Safety Managers: Behavior Based Safety Programs rely on the initiative of every employee, no matter where they are on the corporate ladder, to contribute their ideas and become safety self-accountable.
  1. Observations are only half the battle. Any well-rounded BBS program identifies which actions are most likely to lead to unsafe situations and finds an effective way to encourage safer behaviors through incentives, training and initiatives.

With these key elements in mind, you’re on your way to establishing a behavior-focused safety program. Seeing the results will take time, but the changes from these programs can have a very positive and long-lasting effect.

Behavior Based Safety (BBS) is a safety management discipline based on the premise that a worker’s behavior is the root cause of many, if not most, workplace incidents and injuries. BBS involves observing employees in the workplace and attempts to influence safer behavior through coaching and educating employees to make safer decisions about their actions.

Typically, a BBS program:Behavior based safety observation

  1. Involves safety personnel – and other employees – observing the workplace activities of workers to identify unsafe behaviors and any actions that may lead to unsafe outcomes;
  2. Aims to understand what is causing the unsafe behaviors;
  3. Implements training, awareness and incentives to eliminate the causes of unsafe behaviors and ultimately replace unsafe behaviors with safe ones.

If done effectively, a BBS program can have long-lasting and extraordinarily positive effects on the safety performance of a company and its employees.

Quality audit data collection

Certainty helped Rocky Brands reduce data collection, management and reporting time by 70%

Rocky Brands Inc. is a global leader in apparel and footwear manufacturing and until recently collected their Quality Assurance (QA), Layered Process (LPA), Verification and Lean Manufacturing audit data by hand. Their audit results were then manually keyed into Excel to produce the Quality Management reports and charts needed.

Rocky Brands began using Certainty in an effort to improve their auditing activities and were able to reduce – by 70% – the hours needed for their quality audit data collection, collating and reporting. They now have real-time access to consistent, comparable and actionable Quality Management metrics across their business.

So glad to be a part of this great success story!
