Most Safety Management System audits focus solely on the presence and quality of documentation, rather than being concerned with its reach and day-to-day effectiveness. Behaviour Based Safety (BBS) management system has proven to be an effective tool for the reduction of workplace accidents.
BBS is a process that provides organisations the opportunity to move to a higher level of safety excellence by promoting proactive responses to leading indicators, building ownership, trust & unity across the team and empowering employees towards safety.
Consultivo is recognised as an industry leader in the areas of Occupational Health & Safety (OH&S) and Behaviour Based Safety – BBS.
Our specialists have extensive experience in BBS programmes having worked in the area for many years. We provide practical support, training and solutions to our customers.

Behaviour based safety - BBS
Our specialised resources have been leading the way to safer workplaces for more than 500 organisations/units since 2009.
How can we work together?
The programme involves Consultivo assesors carrying out planned routine behavioural safety audits. It involves immediate one-to-one feedback on the observation with the person involved. The observations feedback focuses on both positive and negative behaviours observed. At Consultivo, we use the following four-stage process:
Identification of existing Behaviour Based Safety issues which are leading to unsafe practices and incidents. The inputs will be
• Company’s existing accident & incident analysis report
• Task observation results
• Interview with concerned people
• Identification of existing BBS measures being taken by the organisation
• 1 day Behavioural Safety Audit training programme with key personnel who will be involved in behavioural audits
• 1/2 day Behavioural Safety Awareness training programme with all the personnel (Know more about Behaviour Based Safety Training Programme)
Consultivo will facilitate & support in the full implementation & evaluation of BBS programme in the organisation. We will also be helping in finalising the implementation programme timetable & key milestones. Consultivo will also conduct planned safety audit, report and analyse the findings.
Why implement a Behaviour Based Safety System?
Behaviour Based Safety (BBS) systems came about to reduce accidents and their resultant costs. The costs can be human costs (in the form of death or injury) or financial costs (in the form of damage to equipment, raw material, product, etc). Many research highlight the fact that up to 96% of all accidents & incidents are caused by human error, with only 4% due to unsafe work conditions. So, Behaviour Based Safety focuses on worker behaviour & human factors rather than limiting itself to the traditional approach of engineering safeguards. The aim is to change behaviour and foster a positive, open safety culture. This, in turn, leads not only to reduced injuries & illness but also to improved morale, quality, performance & productivity.
