Taking Stock of Behavior-Based Safety: What’s Next?


Behavior-based safety has its proponents and its detractors. For decades, this employee-led model has been at the heart of organizational safety improvement—and the center of debate.

Why? What is it about BBS that makes it so controversial? And why have so many experienced success with this process, while others have come up empty?

DEKRA’s senior vice president, Jim Spigener, will address the BBS dilemma in an upcoming webinar presented by the American Society of Safety Engineers. Jim has helped companies worldwide to design, prepare, and implement successful safety solutions at every organizational level, from senior leaders to shop floor personnel. His unsurpassed knowledge of BBS implementations at worksites around the world informs a level of expertise rare in the safety community. Jim knows what works, what doesn’t, and why. He has helped hundreds of teams achieve the promise of true and effective behavior-based safety.

Join Jim on December 4, 2017, to learn the key steps to engaging employees and leaders in advancing a successful observation process that supports safety transformation. Jim will discuss:

  • The shortcomings of behavior-based safety
  • What has happened to undermine BBS — and why
  • Why behavior-based safety is still a viable approach
  • How we need to think about BBS in the future in order to drive real improvement (and avoid the pitfalls)
