See you all at the 2018 edition of the European Congress of Behavior-Based Safety and Performance Management!
What does the effectiveness of reinforcement or feedback depend on? How to avoid that observations turn into an automatic and inaccurate compilation of a checklist among the many? What to do after you have reached Zero Accidents? Those were the questions that the conference asked its international speakers.
This is the 11th edition of the biggest event in Europe dedicated to the effective management of behavior-safety in the workplace. The event has already been awarded 3 times with a commemorative medal by the President of the Republic, for its high moral value and its great social impact.
Below are the main themes of 2017's symposia
1) The role of management in the maintenance of the B-BS processes and in the involvement of third-party companies
Without the committment of the management, clear in communications and materialized in some activities under the direct control of top management, the behavioral safety processes risk after a few years of interrupting and failing in their purpose, ie reduce frequency and severity of injuries. The directors of the workplaces that have applied the B-BS protocol in recent years have been invited to bring their experience and to talk about the solutions adopted to establish an effective A-B-C cascade starting from top management and corporate. The congress will illustrate the results obtained due to the application of the protocol, the methods of involvement of external companies and, moreover, a B-BS project for the safe driving of the sales network.
2) The B-BS applied to the health field for the protection of doctors, operators and patients
The first research carried out in Italy on the application of the B-BS in the health sector, was carried out by AARBA researchers thanks to the contribution and funding of INAIL and the Ministry of Health, it showed the remarkable fallout that the behavioral safety protocol has in the health field, where health and safety behaviors are not only by operators and doctors, but also and above all, by patients: since the potentially preventable hospital infections represent about 30% of those that have arisen, it can be estimated that every year there are between 135,000 and 210,000 preventable infections thanks to simple and cost-free actions, carried out with high frequency, such as “washing your hands".
The congress will be an opportunity to learn the precautions to adapt the standard protocol to the health sector and to know the results that can be obtained through the direct experiences of some hospitals.
Heineken is the most international beer producer in the world, being present with its brands in 179 countries. Altogether Heineken Company produces and sells more than 250 beers and ciders (premium, regional, local, specialties, etc.). Health and safety have always been an integral part of the Heineken business. The goal is simple: zero victims. Our “Safety First" approach is focused on increasing safety throughout the company. In 2015 we developed the Heineken Life Saving Rules, which came into force on 1 January 2016. The 12 rules establish clear and simple “things to do" and “things not to do" for our life-threatening activities. All production facilities are required to evaluate their safety performance and to fill any gaps. Most of the fatal and non-fatal work accidents happen outside our production sites when our operators are transporting or distributing our products: this is due to the fact that we are in a less controlled environment. This is why we have a global strategy that is systematically addressing security across the entire company, with a particular focus on road safety.
