28 March 2016: One-day Seminar on BEHAVIOUR BASED SAFETY
Posted On : 4th March 2016

Indian Chemical Council (ICC) under the auspices of the Sustainability, Responsible Care, Safety, Health and Environment Expert Committee, and with the support of DCPC, Ministry of Chemicals & Fertilizers, Government of India is organizing One-day Seminar on "BEHAVIOUR BASED SAFETY" on Monday, 28 March 2016.

The venue of the Seminar is Terrace Hall, West End Hotel, 45 New Marine Lines, Near Bombay Hospital, Mumbai - 400 020.

Behaviour Safety is a statistically meaningful improvement of the Safety Performance in the Workplace. Behavioral safety is a medicine to provide safe workplace to its employees. It’s new generation safety culture. BBS is a insurance towards safety. The first beneficiary is the safety department which gets so many BBS (Behaviour Based Safety) trained observers by implementing BBS across the plants in the organization.

With BBS awareness, ICC is trying to enhance perception about the presence of something that happens just before an accident occurs, which is an unsafe behaviour, and BBS training helps an organization to reduce and remove this, so that the work environment is safe, everybody is safe, and the production, business etc go smoothly. More than when eyes are closed, an unsafe act within your eyes are open to an fatal act.

BBS approach has included the OHSAS 18001:2007 compliances in its training applications and the human behaviour / behavioural management aspects pertaining to safety.


The Seminar would provide exposure and experience to the BBS Concepts; Observation and Feedback processes; and implementation of BBS in an organization. The Seminar shall be useful in understanding and application of the concept and process of behavior based safety for safety professionals and managers at all levels concerned about correcting unsafe behaviors for reduction of accidents and promoting safe behaviors for developing injury-free culture in their organizations. The participants attending this workshop would be trained to function as BBS observers and implement the same in their respective organizations.


The Seminar will be coordinated by Dr. HarbansLal Kaila, BBS India Project Director. Before BBS is launched in organizations, training exposure to the employees is essentially envisaged. Hence BBS training Seminar will include the following components / inputs:

  • Concept of Behaviour Based Safety
  • BBS as OHSAS Compliance
