The 9th Annual Behavioural-Based Safety Conference takes place 25 – 28 February 2013 at Convention Dynamics in Isando, Johannesburg. The aim of the conference is to develop an effective intervention strategy to reduce workplace fatalities and accidents caused by human error.

Annual Behavioural-Based Safety Conference

Behavioural-based safety (BBS) is still a challenge for many companies. Injuries and accidents in the workplace are all too often caused by human error, and even if an organisation has a BBS programme in place it does not necessarily mean that the risk of accidents is significantly reduced.

For a BBS strategy to succeed it must be firmly integrated into the organisational culture – something which is easier said than done. In addition, systems to support BBS must be implemented appropriately and senior management must drive the BBS programme to ensure a higher level of compliance by employees.

All these issues and more will be discussed at IIR’s 9th Annual Behavioural-Based Safety conference.

  • Innovative tools and techniques for implementing BBS
  • Enhancing behavioural-based safety through a resilient reporting culture
