Creating and maintaining a competitive business that keeps safety as a priority is tough. Organizations have created excellent practices and procedures resulting in safer work environments, but behavior must be a key component of any successful safety endeavor.

Removing Obstacles to Safety: A Behavior-Based Approach provides a quick, but detailed overview for integrating that key component with any ongoing safety process. Relevant to every member of any workforce, behavior-based safety (BBS) presents solutions to ergonomic, production, and lone worker issues at every level. Though targeting safety at work, this book also serves as a handy and easy-to-understand guide that reveals how to use BBS anywhere at anytime—because accidents don’t just happen on the job. In fact, for many, taking this system home has demonstrated the value of positive steps that even kids can use to develop safe habits.

Case studies, chapter summaries, and a Q & A section kept the 1st edition in demand, but the revised edition offers even more: additional chapters further defining managerial, supervisory and frontline roles, leadership strategies, and industry-specific examples of applying this proven method to and beyond safety initiatives. Removing Obstacles to Safety, 2nd edition, clearly explains the scientifically based formula for removing barriers to safe behavior, identifying and eliminating at-risk actions, and optimally promoting safety at work and at home.
