We guide our clients through this process.

BBS systems aim to reduce accidents and resulting costs. The costs can be human costs, in the form of death or injury. As well as, financial costs in the form of damage to equipment, raw material, product, etc.  BBS programmes focus on changing human behaviour and fostering a positive, open safety culture. This in turn leads to reduced fatalities, injuries, illnesses and costs due to damage.

The CMSE Behavioural Based Safety Process

The programme involves front line staff carrying out planned routine behavioural safety observations audits / tours. 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 CMSE we use the following four-stage process:

Stage 1 - On-site evaluation

This evaluation phase includes one-to-one interviews with key members of your management team, supervisors and informal discussions with operators during the site tour, and a review of your key Safety Management System (SMS). On completion of the evaluation, our report gives key findings and recommendations on how best to integrate a behavioural safety programme within your existing safety management system. We present the report and recommendations to your senior management team in the form of a presentation.

Stage 2 - Behavioural Based Safety Training Phase

  • 1 day Behavioural Safety Audit training programme with key personnel who will be involved in behavioural audits / tours
  • 1/2 day Behavioural Safety Awareness training programme with all personnel

Stage 3 - Implementation of BBS Programme

  • Identify and agree the internal and external support resources
  • Agree implementation programme timetable and key milestones
  • Develop list of “golden rules” or model behaviours to follow
  • Conduct planned safety observation audit / tours, report and analyse findings
  • CMSE will facilitate and support the full implementation of the BBS Programme
