Can we predict safety? Yes. Safety-Index!

Usually we measure safety through the rearview mirror. We count the number of incidents and define how safe the organization was. We make the assumption that this figure reflects todays safety performance. But we can also look forward? Are there leading indicators that can predict future safety? According to the scientific literature this should be possible. Brain Based Safety is testing this assumption.  The Safety-Index combines lagging and leading indicators, using elements of all three basic safety areas: Technology, Rules & Regulations and Human behavior.

What is Brain Based Safety?

Brain Based Safety uses recent knowledge of the brain to enhance safety within organizations. The approach is positive: a focus on how to generate safe behavior instead of the widespread practice of avoiding incidents. The main idea is to use our innate safety competencies and transfer them into a company environment. The unconscious awareness of unsafety is the strongest motivator for acting safely. The momentum of change lies in acting together and sharing experiences, not in cognitive explanations of improved rules. Click here for more theory.

Human – safety – economy

The mission of Brain Based Safety is to contribute new impulses from a psychological perspective to safety policy. It helps to develop an approach which leads to a safer world. Brain Based Safety provides a theoretical framework, that allows users to test and further develop their own approach. The result is a safety policy that is solid and  tailor-made for each organization. Integrated safety management strengthens the underlying stream and enhances the control over company processes, which results in better performance on several fields like safety, quality and profit.
