Safety Observation Program Data Management

Graham Marshall - Saturday, June 11, 2011

The successful introduction of any Behavioral Based Safety initiative relies on good information management.

You might have the best BBS process for observations but if the information collected during observations is not handled appropriately, the whole program will be fatally weakened.

Leaders, managers, supervisors and workers participating in any BBS program need to be able to input, capture, analyze, access and report on information for easy decision support. 

The information system behind any BBS programm needs to be inherent flexible with a framework providing the most comprehensive information management capabilities.

Below are some features that I would recommend to be essential for data management for any BBS program to stand a chance of success:

  • One centralized database for company-wide BBS information management.
  • Ability for organizational customization for site-specific HSE observations and user security.
  • Ensure consistent BBS information management process across your organization.
  • Information management program should provide real-time tracking of HSE observations.
  • Should provide the ability to identify areas requiring HSE improvement within the organization.
  • The BBS information management system should assist in establishing organization strategic HSE plans, HSE training needs and other long-term HSE commitments.
  • The information management system should allow a wide range of data analysis to be performed. 
  • Should allow for relevent reports to be created for appropriate stakeholders using available BBS information.

Without those features, your BBS program will be compromised.
