BBS has been tremendously successful in helping improve their safety cultures. However, some organizations struggle once their BBS process is in place due to not using observation intelligence and not communicating the value of this data back to employees and leadership. This presentation will introduce safety predictive analytics, tools and strategies and describe research that has culminated in the creation of the “4 Safety Truths” and over 95% accuracy in predicting where your next injury will occur.
