Behavior-Based Safety, is the most commonly used process to obtain improvements in injury reduction. Its core components are so powerful that it is hard to imagine how it won't get great results. Per Bill Sims, failures and lukewarm BBS systems have these in common: 1) You didn't do your homework; 2) You bought off the shelf, not customized; 3) Too complex; 4) Your leaders weren't involved; 5) You didn't know when to ask for help; 6) You don't know how to deliver feedback, recognition and celebrate success.
In his presentation, “BBS: The Good (Ice Cream), The Bad (Green Beans) and The Ugly”, session 557 at Safety 2017 Bill Sims Jr. will look at some key dynamics of why employees in so many companies have become mechanical in performing their BBS process, if they participate at all. Attendees will learn how to sustain a BBS process over time for maximum success.
