Behavior-based safety (BBS) is a scientifically proven method for reducing accidents in the workplace. Implementing the BBS approach to safety will make a critical impact on the actions of your employees and managers. This introductory course will help you develop the foundation for a safer work culture. We will discuss important questions, such as:
1)What are the crucial factors of a Behavior-based safety program?
2)What are the likely results from this safety process?
3)What are the practical steps that we can take to ensure safety?
4)What role does leadership have in this process?
