  • Behaviour Based Safety is a process designed to encourage conversation, to reinforce safe work practices and eliminate at-risk behaviours.
  • It aims at preventing injuries to employees and contractors and improving the safety  culture in the company, by building relationships.
  • It is a program that everyone is asked to participate in with a view to seeing results through their own actions.

The history of Behavioural Based Safety

In 1969 Dan Peterson pointed out that the degree of incident probability increases along with the increase of actions that can be referred to at-risk behaviour.That means if there are lots of unsafe conditions and behaviours at your workplace, the probability of potentially hazardous accidents without serious consequences increases. Also the probability of accidents, resulting in medical aid cases up to fatalities, increases.

Let’s look at a concrete example: Work at height using tools is in progress.  There is a work activity in progress on the ground and the work area is not barricaded even though there is a walkway that is being used by personnel. Tools often fall from height which is observed by the passing people who take no actions as long as the tools do not fall on them. Finally, a heavy hammers falls and strikes a worker who sustains a severe shoulder injury.

This example is linked to the pyramid in the following way:

Absence of the barricade around the work area below - that is an unsafe behaviourand conditions

Tools falling down while work is in progress, personnel who take no action to correct that - that is a near miss

A heavy hammer falling and striking an employee who receives an injury – that is an incident.

Therefore, the behaviouralbased safety programme(call out the animation) which at an early stage prevents an at-risk behaviourbefore an incident occurs reduces the basis of the triangle thus not allowing for the top part to arise.

Our expectations from the programmeimplementation are a reinforced safe behaviour  culture, identification of the barriers to safe work practices and prevention of near misses.

Safety Culture

What are the hallmarks of a good health and safety culture?

  • instil a strong commitment to health and safety
  • reduce accidents and ill health
  • improve the bottom line
  • are naturally part of the organisation’s way of life
  • have an atmosphere where everyone wins.
