Learn Why Regulations Alone are Sometimes NOT Enough to Improve Safety

While we acknowledge the role of enforcing rules, regulations, and policies in any comprehensive safety program, we also believe that enforcement has its limits.  120 years of behavioral science and data on mining-related fatalities collected by MSHA themselves would back-up this assertion. We are pleased to present a new brief video of Dr. Boyce sharing a story that describes a circumstance where enforcement (reprimanding at-risk behavior) is not the appropriate solution to the problem identified.  Please view the video here: httpv://www.youtube.com/watch?v=rJKHYQAKnmk and share your story of a situation where enforcement would not be enough to improve safety.

Something to Think About

Says Dr. Thomas E. Boyce: "I advocate the use of Psychology in the workplace- in every profession, especially in Safety, Communication and Production. Test: in the U.K. High-Risk industrial employers are 6 times less likely to be injured or have a fatality. Given this I would suspect that even if not formal about it, they are more likely to use psychology in the workplace. Consider that something as simple as a break for tea in the afternoon can do wonders for employee morale and improved morale is often correlated with better employee performance."~ August 8, 2013

If Your Facility Hasn’t Injured Someone in a While, You May NOT Be Doing Your Job!

Be amongst the first to hear Dr. Boyce’s NEW provocative, enlightening, and practical keynote address.   Developed in response to his article of the same title just published in Mining Quarterly (click here), the talk description supplied to CBS by Dr. Boyce reads as follows: “Zero injuries isn’t always what it’s cracked up to be.  In fact, “zero” can lull a facility in to a sense of complacency regarding the basic necessities of injury prevention.  During this edgy, yet entertaining and informative talk, Dr. Boyce will describe the downside of using traditional measures of safety such as injury-rate to evaluate safety success and also the perils of rewarding the absence of injuries as a measure of good performance. He will also ...

Take Your Behavior-Based Safety Process to the Next Level!

We are pleased to announce a new keynote speech and workshop by Dr. Boyce entitled: How to Take Your BBS Process to the Next Level:Things You Need to Know that Your Consultant Won’t Tell You.  Please see a brief program description below: Many companies have tried a version of Behavior-Based Safety (BBS).  Each likely involved some form of observation card, employee observations in the field, feedback, and action plans around critical issues identified.  And, despite these consistencies in appearance and mechanics, some companies have great success with BBS and are able to sustain it over the course of years while others see little added benefit beyond that often described by employees as “flavor of the month”.  This talk will discuss the science-based ...
