This intensive, highly interactive workshop will fully qualify attendees to return to their companies prepared to design a customized plan to strategically implement a Behavior-Based Safety process. This approach is an option for companies who want to maximize their own ability to implement BBS while minimizing outside costs.
It is ProAct Safety’s experience-based belief that to ensure success, materials should be customized to reflect the unique culture of the location and details of the process. Handout materials are provided for seminar use only. Electronic materials are not included. If the attendees would like to license the materials for use at a single site or multiple locations, please contact ProAct Safety for a quote.
Creating Internal Capabilities
This workshop will train participants to utilize ProAct Safety’s Lean BBS® methodologies for facilitating an implementation. Most importantly, it will prepare the consultants to anticipate and handle the issues that can challenge the success of Behavior-Based Safety (BBS) efforts. Participants will also be able to identify opportunities to minimize the perception of change, achieve the quickest success possible, and ensure long-term process sustainability.
ProAct Safety has been extremely successful with their Internal Consultant Certification Workshop that is designed for organizations that desire to internalize and sustain Behavior-Based Safety capabilities. Additionally, ProAct Safety is familiar with all the major methods of implementation and has developed a collection of best practices through our experience with over 1000 successful Behavior-Based Safety implementations. Because of this unique position, we are able to instruct individuals on specific consultative methods to customize & implement Behavior-Based Safety, and attractive but ineffective approaches to avoid. Companies using this path strategy should have highly qualified personnel and sufficient internal resources.
ProAct Safety will certify the selected individuals to return to their location and begin designing and implement a customized Behavior-Based Safety process. This approach is not strictly a train-the-trainer course, nor is it intended to teach individuals to simply deliver training on Behavior-Based Safety. Every site will have its own unique challenges and cultures. To allow the internal consultants the most opportunities for success, it is extremely important they understand and internalize the strategies to identify the site-specific variables that have become, or could become, problematic barriers. What works at one site will not always work at another.
Lean BBS® utilizes aspects of performance and quality systems to drastically reduce the typical internal resource requirements of a Behavior-Based Safety process. Lean Behavior-Based Safety focuses on leveraged use of resources, resulting in better results in a shorter time, less disruption to operations, and less resistance from workers and unions.
Re-energize Your Existing BBS Process
Unfortunately, it is common to see the results from many traditional Behavioral Safety processes plateau after the first two to three years of operation. At that point, the process can become routine and lose the original result-based orientation. The successes that motivated the process early-on disappear and the entire process tends to slowly lose momentum. Successful Behavior-Based Safety processes do not typically fade away, but can be much less effective than they are capable of being. This is the perfect time for BBS process improvement. Improvement strategies can accomplish several important objectives:
* Attain the next step in accident-reduction results through better targeting
* Increase the level of expertise in the personnel active in the process
* Provide new techniques to the observation and data analysis strategies
* Re-energize the process utilizing Lean BBS® techniques to improve results and increase employee participation
* Reduce manpower requirements to maintain the process
* Assess the existing Behavior-Based Safety process for foundations to build on
* Make more efficient use of site leaders and steering teams
* Narrow the focus of the checklist to improve efficiency
* Focus observations where they will produce the best results
* Learn tactics for continuous process improvement to ensure process sustainability
