  • Elements of safety culture: The value of a choice and the importance of sharing this value with a group. Plato’s allegory of the cave.

Behavioral Safety for Culture Change

Behavior Based Safety (BBS) is the application of the science of behavior to the field of workplace safety. Its essential components are

  1. pinpointed definitions of safe behaviors, 
  2. observation and measurement of behavior, 
  3. behavior-specific feedback to employees, 
  4. behavior-specific goals, and 
  5. positive reinforcement of all organizational behavior that contributes to safety and health

BBS is more than conditioning workers into safe habits. BBS is a strategy to change the organizational culture in order to encourage safety. But you cannot talk employees into safety or create safety awareness out of nothing: “[I]t is much more cost-effective to ‚act’ an employee into safe thinking than it is to ‚think’ a person into safe acting” (Scott Geller). 

Christoph Bördlein presents BBS as the ideal way to change the way people behave, think, and feel about safety.

Ready for Safety? – How to Analyze Obstacles to and Resources for Safety from a Behavior-Analytic Point of View

Behavior Based Safety (BBS) is not a one-size-fits-all solution. Feedback and positive reinforcement of safe behaviors are often effective in strengthening workplace safety, but there are more factors influencing the decision for safe or unsafe behavior, e.g.: Is the PPE designed in a way that encourages its use? Is the work organized in a way that unsafe behaviors are less effort for the worker than the safe behaviors?

The participants of this workshop learn how to analyze the factors influencing safe and unsafe behaviors through a behavior analytic lens. The Performance-Diagnostic-Checklist Safety (PDC-S), a valuable and science-based assessment tool, will help the participants to structure the analysis and derive analysis-based strategies to improve workplace safety.

How to engage people in EHS with software

As EHS professionals, we need more data and information to support our decision making. Unfortunately, studies show that it is difficult to engage people in EHS to collect this data. We learned from Safety Management Trend Report 2021 and many other sources that the line-management is not always as committed to EHS as we'd like them to be.

In this presentation, Timo Kronlöf will guide you through some of the key findings from the EHS industry and the most recent Safety Management Trend Report to understand the reasons for motivation towards EHS and how EHS software could be used to solve this challenge.

  • Why is this difficult and what could EHS software do to help the EHS teams engaging people in EHS?
  • Would it make sense to consider different approaches to EHS such as safety-II or safety differently?
  • How could we utilize software to motivate more management commitment to EHS?
