The Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) has been cited in acknowledging that workplace accidents are primarily due to human error. Most businesses are unaware that the cost of just 1 injury may cost hundreds of thousands of dollars to revenue to the "bottom line". According to the OSHA, Safety Pays model for accident recovery, a business with 3% profit margin would have to pay a total of $40,023 for a laceration and have to make $1,334,100 million in additional sales. If the worker can receive a laceration from the common unsafe behavior of operating machinery without a guard. This action can be avoided by instituting a behavioral based safety system.
The Behavioral Based Safety system (BBS) is a valued tool used in conjunction with other safety and health aids, such as, job hazard analysis, fault tree analysis, audits, and inspections. The BBS focuses on the behavior of the worker which is measurable and observable, unlike a person's attitude. When behavior which can cause accidents and organizational loses are observed, the BBS system will give aids to the safety officer in coaching safe behavior. The final output of an effective BBS system is to create a safety culture.
