May 2 2017:Unions and BBS: The 7 Deadly Sins
Register for Webinar
There are many processes called Behavior-Based Safety, or something similar, and unions oppose most of them. When you examine union resistance to BBS, you find seven common objections. We should recognize that their concerns and complaints are real and valid. Some approaches to BBS have caused problems, and the results have been negative for unions and their members. But the next question should be: Is this problem the result of a flaw in the core philosophy of BBS, or is it the result of poor methodology? The fact that there have been hundreds of successful union-friendly BBS methods at union sites suggests the latter. How did this opposition start, why is it not resolved, and what can you do about it if you want to use BBS at a union site? Explore the history, the seven key issues, and a detailed plan for BBS success that has worked at over 600 union sites.

July 11 2017: Behavior-Based Safety: Common Traps to Avoid
Register for Webinar
Behavioral safety processes have created value and controversy for over thirty years. Multiple methodologies argue for a dominant position in the marketplace resulting in confusion and strengthening an often dangerous resolve to do-it-yourself. It is hard to decipher which approaches have created sub-optimized results, or in some cases, failures. Both equally often result in substantial barriers to future attempts. With the experience of partnering with hundreds of organizations to break past these previously established barriers, this talk will provide insight into the common traps to avoid and enable you to ensure your path leads to positive transformation, rather than false-starts and failures.

September 12 2017: Behavior-Based Safety: From Surviving to Thriving
Register for Webinar
Any methodology that creates new results can also as a byproduct, create a new culture. If the process doesn't keep up with the new reality, it will almost certainly become an awkward fit. Is your BBS process simply surviving, doing all it can to avoid failure or is it thriving, adding new value every day? This webinar explores simple and practical steps to breathe life into any BBS methodology and even measure how precisely your process is thriving.

November 7 2017: Behavior-Based Safety: New Results Through Efficiency and Cost-Consciousness
Register for Webinar
After assessing sites with mixtures of all major BBS methodologies, one thing is common, lack of efficiency. This webinar explores opportunities for significant improvements in how the process is structured, focused, data leveraged and continuously improved. Learn how hundreds of organizations of all sizes have easily found vast opportunities to be better cost-conscious and make their processes lean (efficient and value-focused).

January 2018: Behavior-Based Safety: Internal Implementation Considerations
Would you purchase a vehicle with the hood welded shut? Probably not, but this analogy precisely represents how organizations tend to invest in behavior-based safety (BBS). When a company has determined it is ready for a behavioral approach to injury prevention, who should lead the implementations: external or internal consultants? As experts in BBS, we believe organizations should look first at internal capabilities. After auditing and enhancing hundreds of existing BBS processes in every major industry, one unfortunate truth cannot be refuted, organizations that do not attempt to internalize the expertise necessary for long-term BBS success in the beginning rarely do so later on. When the most important information to the process is largely externalized, a consultant must remain on-call, which is not the healthiest way to lead a major improvement in any area of operations. The stickiest of culture changes are led from within. This webinar explores internal implementation considerations that should be part of any plan around BBS.

March 2018: Structuring Support: RRRs of BBS
