Behaviour Safety is a statistically meaningful improvement of the Safety Performance in the Workplace.

Behavioral safety is all about changing the basic organizational culture to inculcate positive safety at the workplace. This is popularly known as behaviour based safety (BBS).Killing thousands of people at workplace across the globe every year is a major concern and one wonders whether achieving zero accident is a mere documentation exercise or is it really achievable for industry.

Unsafe or at-risk behaviours are considered to be the ultimate cause of most workplace accidents. Zero accident or zero unsafe behaviour is an occupational safety perspective that needs clarity for organizational emphasis. This manuscript challenges the management perspective and action on utilization of the existing safety systems and programs in organizations that keeps on disabling and killing people at work, thereby making zero accident-injury situations far from achieving a safe workplace for people.

Author shares reflections of his longitudinal action research carried out in Indian multinational companies extended over 15 years (1997-2013) for benefit of the management practice of safety in organizations.TABLE OF CONTENTS• Foreword• Preface• Acknowledgements• Safety PoemChapter I: BBS Concepts• An introduction to BBS• BBS is OHSAS Compliance• BBS Triangle• What Behavioral Safety Training Does?• BBS Basics• BBS and OHS Culture• Questions and concerns about BBSChapter II: BBS Processes• Observation and Feedback Process• What does a BBS observer gain from actively caring?• Some Problems in observing and giving feedback• Reasons BBS observer may fail in observation and feedback process• BBS observer requires interpersonal skills• Observers’ test of excellence• Observers’ five P behaviours• Concept of an active observer• Quotes by Excited ObserversChapter III: BBS Implementation• Roadmap to Implement BBS at workplace• BBS implementation and Steering committee• Problems in Implementing BBS In Your Organization• What action plan is desirable in launching BBS?• Tasks of BBS Steering Teams• Role of BBS Steering Committee• An Indian Experience on Behavior Based Safety• Experiential learning of BBS trained observers• Pre-requisites for BBS Project• Some Names for BBS Project• Questions that are asked by the managements before BBS launch• BBS Training Components• Training for BBS Observers and the Steering Committee Members• Train the Trainer Programme: creating internal change agents within organization• Contractor Workmen Training on BBS• Ten Expectations of BBS Training participants• Attitudes and Skills for Training participants in BBS approach• Responses of BBS training participants• Material for BBS posters and banners• Pointers on how to sustain BBS culture in organization• BBS Project organization: a case• Case of a BBS Implementation Plan• Managers’ Experiences of BBS• Quotes on BBS from O
