Behavioural safety package to address workplace accidents
The BCSA’s National Steelwork Con- tractors Group has funded a Behav- ioural Based Safety Package (BBS) to address workplace practices that can lead to accidents and injuries.
“The package uses the most advanced human factor support material that includes an interactive DVD and manual, all aimed specifically at the steel construction industry,” said Pete Walker, BCSA Health & Safety Manager.
The BBS package has been de- veloped to help managers and su- pervisors acquire new techniques and improved skills which will enable them to satisfy their safety responsibilities.
“It is based upon techniques that have proved in many different indus- tries to have a dramatic effect on safety related behaviour,” added Mr Walker. “It is generally accepted that 98% of all accidents are due to the unsafe acts of people. BBS can assist in developing and maintaining good safety performance by being presented in an attractive and entertaining format.”
Only available to BCSA members, BBS is priced at £120 and contains five self-contained chapters plus an interactive hazard spotting section. For more information on the package contact email@example.com or telephone 01325 366328.
