BEHAVIOUR-BASED SAFETY: A CASE STUDY ILLUSTRATING A SUCCESSFUL

Download User attached pdf file
"Industry is becoming increasingly aware of the importance of taking
human factors into account in safety management, particularly in the
mining industry where human operations dominate. Accidents are
commonly attributed to at-risk behaviour or human error. When
accidents are investigated, many of the systemic causal factors are
human in their origins, eg: inadequate training, bad design or poor
safety culture.
Behaviour-based safety programs have become a popular approach
to managing the people issues in safety. However in many ways,
programs have not delivered on promises and organisations have
been left dissatisfied. Common complaints of traditional approaches
to behaviour-based safety are (a) narrow scope, focused on
behaviour change rather than concurrently addressing causes for at -
risk behaviour, (b) one-size-fits-all approach rather than a BBS
system tailored to organisational characteristics and culture, (c)
poorly integrated with existing safety management systems."
