What is Behavioural Safety:
How to Apply it for Maximum Benefit.
e-Report No. 6, ISBN 1 901810 59 3
This manual will explain exactly what behavioural safety is, the benefit and why we need it. As a Health and Safety Manager or Advisor, it will give you the background to easily explain to others how to effectively apply behavioural safety in the workplace and its many benefits. The manual also clarifies the terminology surrounding behavioural safety that can be so confusing.
More importantly, this manual will show you, in a step-by-step fashion, how to facilitate your own behavioural safety workshops, showing the benefit. This amounts to a coaching session from Dr Bill, based on his 20 years of successfully facilitating behavioural safety workshops in over 40 client organisations with over 4000 participants.
If you study the steps, you’ll know just about everything there is to deliver the behavioural workshops. You will learn how to set up the workshops, introduce them, conduct the exercises and then hold detailed discussions. You get template handouts for you to adapt. To be of even more assistance, Dr Bill gives some tips on facilitation skills in Appendix III.
There is no theory and no psychological mumbo-jumbo. The five main behavioural traps are explained and practical details are given of the “tools” to help people avoid these traps. You won’t find these unique and valuable “tools” expressed so succinctly and in one place in any other publication.
There is other valuable content in this manual that you won’t find elsewhere: how to embed behavioural safety into the everyday practices of your organisation. To be thorough, several definitions of behavioural safety are listed with comments by Dr Bill. This is a valuable reference source if you wish to study further. Also, to be thorough, Appendix II explains what Behaviour-Based-Safety (BBS) is and why you should avoid it.
