Human element is one of the root causes of many incidents and illnesses with Health, Safety and Environment (HSE) outcomes or potential implications globally, be it work or off-the work. An individual who is not well groomed and trained in Behaviour-Based Safety (BBS) can initiate incidents that result not only in serious human injuries but also multiple fatalities resulting from major incidents. Depending upon the industry, major incidents could be fire, explosion, toxic/lethal releases, collapsing of buildings/ scaffolding, / maritime structures, etc.
Many companies worldwide are orienting their supervisors and workers alike to BBS. BBS has transformed the safety culture in countless companies which had very bad safety records and were on the verge of losing their business. Proactive management leaders invariably send their employees and contractors to the BBS courses and workshops.
What is Behavior Based Safety training? Behavior Based Safety (BBS) course is designed to psychologically shake people at all levels who are caught unaware in their professional and social life regarding safety. Careless attitude towards our actions without realizing irreparable consequences have ruined many lives and caused huge losses to companies. BBS convinces people to prioritize safety at the right time and at the right level.
