Safety Behaviour Discussions Board

The site has introduced a visual graphic display to document our Safety Behavioural Discussions (SBD), which is part of our Challenging Beliefs, Affecting Behaviours (CBAB) toolkit.

An SBD is an engagement between Site Management and Operatives to highlight both positive and negative actions on site. We use direct discussion with operatives to try and change behaviour rather than simply policing site rules and policies. The SBD board is then used as a management tool to educate through toolbox talks and briefings, whilst also promoting good safety practices.

The board is not intended to shame or embarrass any subcontractor or operative, but to visually display current themes and trends and to avoid re-occurrence. SBDs could be carried out and recorded electronically, however we’ve taken the concept back to basics and are using a visual display with a ‘traffic light’ system to document the positive and negative conversations. The board is strategically located in the lobby between the welfare and site, and serves as a subliminal prompt before entering the site as well as a direct safety management tool when needed.
