Transcript of Behavior-Based Safety
Implementing a Behavior-Based Safety Program
System to Establish a Culture [to prevent] Unsafe Research Experiments
What was done?
Setting Higher Expectations
Increase Safety Knowledge & Perception to 75%
Decrease Inspection Findings
Increase Overall Compliance to 75%
How it worked
Determine the Results
What is Behavior-Based Safety?
54% Positive Safety Perception Responses
57% Correct Safety Knowledge Responses
A settled way ofthinking or feeling, typically reflected in a person's behavior.

What will be done
to correct these
1. Behavior-Based Analysis
2. Met w/ Safety Committee
3. Safety Survey
4. Created Goals
5. Implemented Program
Repeat inspection findings
Repeat at-risk behaviors
Comfort with potential risks
Lack of appropriate

Overall Compliance: 64%
(+) Safety Perception: 54%
Safety Knowlege: 57% correct
Inspection Findings: 16% deficient
Overall Compliance: 95%
