Behaviour-Based Safety (BBS)
Workplace injuries are costly. They are also foreseeable and preventable. This online Behaviour-Based Safety course is designed to heighten awareness to at-risk situations and provide the tools necessary to change at-risk behaviours before they cause an injury in the workplace.
We all know that workplace incidents involving injuries are costly in terms of human loss and suffering as well as financially. With thousands of workplace fatalities and debilitating injuries reported in Canada and the United States every year, the costs keep rising. Yet inquiries into workplace incidents and near misses often reveal that the majority are foreseeable and preventable.
