BEHAVIOUR BASED SAFETY (BBS) - ADVANTAGES AND CRITICISM
PRODUCTION ENGINEERING ARCHIVES 20(2018), pp.12-15
Behaviour-Based Safety (BBS) is a popular approach to enhancing occupational safety, with many researchers reporting successes of implementing BBS programs. There are, however, studies that see this approach as illusory, bringing more harm than good. The first goal of this article is to present an overview of literature providing both evidence and elaboration of implementing BBS programs, highlighting both positive and negative views of the approach. The second goal is to discuss the perception of the method, based on a literature review and authors’ own research.
