Well done TL. I have also developed a 2 day safety mindset change programme which has a great positive impact on workers in the mines and in factories (smelters) here in South Africa where the literacy levels are low in general-using some of the very same principles you have in your slides-it is the only way to go. There are some pschylologocal priciples behind it such as Festinger's theory -cognisance dissonance etc.
We are planning to role it out in the rest of the world and maybe will get some work to do in India-would then like to meet with you.

We have similar approach but much more intensive and more elaborative and through participation during 2 day workshop-big success here in South Africa.
Servicing the high risk industry of mining and have had good success.

Dear Sarma,

Behavioural based safety is a topic of dispute. BBS fails to answer the question "Why a person does a job in an unsafe way when he can very well do it in a safe way"

Behavioural Based Safety is an approach to safety that focuses on workers' behaviour as the cause of most work-related injuries and illnesses. Promoters of behaviour-based safety programs maintain that 80 - 96% of workplace injuries are caused by workers' unsafe behaviours. Once the programs identify the workers who are behaving "unsafely", they are coaxed, cajoled and/or threatened into behaving “safely” on the job or sacked.

According to Safety and Health Executives, the most common Behaviour Based

Safety Programs: ‘require front line staff to carry out behavioural safety observations on their colleagues’.

The observers are trained, and the results are usually fed back on a one-to-one basis. Some programs do not use one-to-one feedback, but have a group of observers counting instances of ‘unsafe behaviour’, collating the data and reporting back to the group, sometimes developing ‘safe/model’ behaviours.

Unions and others, including health and safety specialists and academics are uncomfortable with these programs because, no matter how well they disguised, the basic assumption is that workers' unsafe acts are the cause of workplace injuries and disease and that idea is totally wrong.

Management system failure is the root cause of every accident. If BBS is accepted and implemented without understanding the consequences accident prevention will not be possible.

May I invite a serious discussion on this one issue please.

I wonder "how many safety prfessionals are there in this group". May I assume not many !

Let us understand each other or otherwise introduce ourselves. Without knowing each other the posting seems to be meaningless. For example a powepoint presentation on BBS from Mr. Sarma. It seems BBS is misunderstood.

I am a safety professional with prolonged experience of around 43 years and proven track record in the field. I started my career as Safety Engineer with Hindustan Aeronautics Ld, Bangalore way back in 1967. Later worked with different types of industries in India and outside. Probably I may be the first OSHA trainer from India still in the field challenging the out dated theory on accident prevention with which we are carrying on.

My passion is in teaching professional safety. Just to trigger the interest I posed here the one question "the difference between accident and incident" The replies are not encouraging. Probably lack of safety professionals in the group. I find only one or two who are really enthusiastic.

Let us have an understandig among ourselves. Please introduce yourselves.

Let us make the forum quite meaningful.
