  1. Great article by Ron Gantt on Behavior Based Safety. Although there are currently numerous attempts to rebrand and “evolve” BBS, just doing the wrong thing better is not the answer. It’s past time to move on from the idea that we can obtain sustainable safety improvement by treating a subset (those easily observed and often repeated) of behaviors in isolation from their context.

      • Hello Tamara,

        Id’d be happy to participate in a discussion such as you suggest. I have a lengthy article that addresses the tendency of many safety efforts to focus on symptoms (e.g., behavior) often at the expense of more fundamental system and organizational culture issues scheduled for publication in October’s Professional Safety. Starting next Thursday, however, I’ll be in the Grand Canyon and out of any form of electronic communication for 17 days. Let’s discuss further after I return on October 23.
