B-BS (Behavior-Based Safety) is a scientific methodology that originates from Behavioral Psychology. It is a method which was born in the United States and has recently been adopted by Italy. The B-BS Protocol promotes safe behavior and reduces the level of accidents associated with undesirable behavior. According to research, this methodology has the most effective outcomes related to work safety in terms of reducing the number of safety-related accidents and incidents. INAIL and trade unions consider the B-BS Protocol to be one of the most valid and effective methods in decreasing the risk of accidents which in turn reduces insurance fees. This is because it is seen as the lowest-risk approach, and therefore is well regarded by insurance companies.
IB has started a collaboration with A.A.R.B.A. (Association for the Advancement of Radical Behavior Analysis), whose President, Professor Fabio Tosolin, is considered to be the leading expert both in Italy and in Europe.
B-BS dataBASE software can be applied to variouos sectors and any organization that has implemented a Behavior-Based Safety (B-BS) project, from manufacturing and shipping, to the chemical industry and healthcare. The application is completely web based, uses the most common browsers, and is responsive, meaning it is capable of adapting to any interface: desktop, tablet and smartphone.
From an operational point of view, B-BS dataBASE collects data, monitors processes through dashboards customised for each player in the process, sends deadline warnings, communicates goals which have been met as well as those that were missed, and suggests rewards for people with a high commitment to security.
