Behaviour Based Safety (BBS) is a proactive approach by focusing attention on at-risk behaviours that can create an unsafe condition or lead to an injury. Behaviour, in its simplest definition, is anything that one can see a person do. Since one can easily see most people’s behaviour, therefore can count or measure behaviour if wanted to.
Attitude and behaviour are quite two different things. Attitudes drive behaviours but the both are not always related. Our behaviours are everything we do or say. Whilst there is a link between attitude and behaviour, they are not the same thing! Behaviour though stems out of attitude, it is largely influenced by the circumstances.
Our time tested approach to BBS is based on the fundamental ABC principles: ‘Antecedents influences the Behaviour leading to Consequence in turn becomes cyclic by setting the precedence. Careful evaluation of present HSE practices forms the foundation to BBS design & implementation.
