Course/Product Description

Six Sigma, Lean, & BBS: A Three-Pronged Approach to Safety

Format: Audio Conference
Description: BBS (Behavior Based Safety) theory has been around for many decades, but in the past few years has become increasingly popular among some businesses. Some claim BBS is the only method to use in safety management and injury reduction. Others claim that BBS is too flawed to be useful. But perhaps there is value in some concepts of BBS when applied properly.

Some other tools gaining popularity in safety management are Lean and Six Sigma principles. Lean is about eliminating waste, while Six Sigma is about identifying a problem, using measurements to make that problem clear, and taking control so as to not make the same mistake twice. That is, to become totally predictable.

Attend this training session to see how elements from BBS, Lean, and Six Sigma can lead to improvements in safety management at your organization.
