Why Zero Injuries Does NOT Always Mean Your Worksite is Safe

Client Results

Clients of CBS represent many industries ranging from construction and mining to manufacturing, service, and government entities. The CBS process has been used successfully in both union and non-union environments and in conjunction with ISO 9000 and ISO 14001 certification.

The CBS process produces high levels of employee participation and has consistently resulted in more than a 50% reduction of injuries during the first year, regardless of prior injury record. All clients have seen a significant savings in costs associated with injuries, some reporting up to an 80% reduction. We would be pleased to put you into contact with our current clients for more specific details on their successes using the CBS process.

For more specific details on a typical implementation and results, please refer to the Case Studies section of our website or contact us directly.

The Gold Mine is a large above ground facility that employed approximately 500 full-time workers at the time of implementation. The facility had a self-reported history of safety defined by “good years” followed by “bad years.”

The Center for Behavioral Safety was asked to change this cycle and help continuously improve the facility’s safety record after a relatively successful year. Read more…
