When a worker is acting in an unsafe manner, or lacks the situational awareness to recognize the hazardous situation he/she is in, who keeps them safe? Everyone!
A well constructed BBS Program is an effective tool to include in your Safety Toolbox. BBS Programs may be based on the complex psychological approach, the personality traits approach, the check-box approach, the filling out cards approach, the basic approach, etc.
We believe that the easier a program is to understand, implement and participate in, the more likely employees will use it. For these reasons, our BBS Program uses the basic, common sense approach.
The two components of the BBS Program are, to observe and to take action. Employees observe for Unsafe Acts and Unsafe Conditions. When an Unsafe Condition is observed, most employees know what to do. We review the obvious action steps, then explore more through exercises.
When an Unsafe Act is observed, the action step is extremely important. Safety Professionals agree that over 95% of accidents are caused by people. Someone did or did not do something.
Unsafe situations are discussed and action steps are developed.
