Behavioral Safety: The Requirements for a Successful B-BS Process

Domain: Theory
FABIO TOSOLIN (Association for the Advancement of Radical Behavior Analysis)

Implementing a Behavior-Based Safety (B-BS) process is a strategic choice that allows to obtain measurable results both in terms of reduction of the number of unsafe behaviors and in terms of building safety values and culture in companies. During the last forty years, through experimental analysis, the B-BS protocol has showed his effectiveness by the vigorous implementation of a structured process, formed by specific and concrete time phases. For such reason, it is of vital importance to follow the specific steps and requirements to avoid some of the common mistakes people, or more specific companies, may interface. The aim of the speech is to present the fundamental elements that need to be adopted to assure the growth of the BBS scientific discipline. The misconception that managers and companies have in relation to the results of a BBS process, is uniquely based on the outcomes, rather than focusing on the possible inappropriate implementation that has been adopted, possibly due to unqualified professionals. Clear definition will be given in relation to the requirements, criteria and professional conduct rules that need to be followed to assure the effectiveness of a B-BS intervention and the protection of the client in all its forms.
