Improving safety with behavior based safety software
Many factors impact the effectiveness of an organization's health and safety management, perhaps none more directly than employee behavior.
Once workers are on the job, they need to execute safe working practices and follow appropriate procedures to minimize injury. Safety coordinators
can do their part to oversee employee behavior by adopting a wide variety of techniques including using effective safety software.
IndustrySafe is a leading safety management software, and its observations module provides safety coordinators with the visibility needed to
observe employee behavior and workplace conditions for improved worksite safety and health.
Scheduling and conducting regular observations
Sample Behavioral Based Checklist
The concept of behavior-based safety management encourages employers to observe their workers' actions and workplace conditions in safety
situations and implement strategies to improve safe actions and safe conditions. A company must buy into such a strategy at every level in order
to benefit from it, and IndustrySafe safety management software is the solution for organizations that wish to implement behavior-based safety in
An easy-to-use observation form can be tailored to each company's needs and complemented with a variety of observation checklists.
Safety coordinators can schedule employees for observation tasks quickly and set automatic reminders to alert them to upcoming or overdue
observations. These features are available for managers and employees across departments and locations, providing supervisors at multiple levels
with easy access to an organization's observation data.
Conducting stronger reporting and analysis
Sample Behavioral Based Metric
With IndustrySafe, users can configure categories and subcategories to gain an increased level of detail over observation reporting, and
autofill features can speed up this process. The IndustrySafe web-based observation module is accessible via nearly any web-based mobile device,
including the iPad, Blackberry and iPhone. As a result, supervisors can conduct observations anywhere on the job site.
Multiple dashboards and metrics allow managers to track valuable statistics including percent safe, monitor location safety, schedule
compliance and employee behavior. Users can access standard reports, including observation card print outs. Observation data can also be compared
to information from IndustrySafe's additional modules, including training, inspections and incidents.
As a result, safety coordinators can analyze employee behavior and data on multiple levels to identify trends and take action when appropriate.
If it appears certain employees may be putting their own health and safety at risk with dangerous behavior, observation reports can be analyzed
quickly and retraining scheduled easily all from the same safety software. Or if it appears certain employees may benefit from additional
education and support, managers can act on this information sooner.
How IndustrySafe helps safety managers accomplish more
With behavior-based observations, safety coordinators can determine how to improve safe act and safe conditions throughout the workplace. As a
result, managers are better informed and are in a position to implement changes when needed.
