Frequently Asked Questions

All members of an organization are involved in improving behaviors toward safety. Leaders and managers must be aware of behavioral changes that need to be observed and changed from all levels, and employees need to actively involve themselves in this as well. It is also the duty of employees to participate in safety efforts and conduct their own observations of those around them.

A typical effective behavior-based safety program has the following elements:

  • Set standards for ideal behavior and performance
  • Accessible learning materials
  • Set system of measurement
  • Set system of program application
  • Continuous evaluation programs

All industries can benefit from a behavior-based safety program, as each workplace has its own set of hazards to be conscious of. Regardless of industry, a behavior-based approach to safety helps improve workplace safety culture, reduce injuries, and ensure compliance with safety regulations.

Having a digital solution can help centralize and standardize the right measurement metrics, helping operations. The effectiveness of your behavior-based safety program can be measured through various inspections, audits, and surveys about the following:

  • Incident rates
  • Near-misses
  • Employee engagement
  • Frequency of safety observations and interventions

Common challenges in creating and implementing a behavior-based safety program include the following:

  • Resistance to changing behaviors
  • Sustaining the program long-term
  • Getting the right resources needed to implement the program
  • Lack of involvement and feedback from all stakeholders
