Abstract

Behavioral science is not a new topic for the industry of occupational health and safety, as its roots can be traced to 1876, wherein two different fields of science of behavioral science and industrial safety are combined to create behavior based safety program for increasing safety of the workforce, as it often happens that the worker behavior is often tied to as immediate cause in case of workplace accident or injury. In this study a review on the present behavior based safety program, the targeted behavior. Further on, the study also aims to investigate if the process of the behavior based safety program is in control or not using the run charts from Statistical Control Techniques (SPC).The objectives of the study is to investigate the effects of the fundamentals of the behavior based safety program on the Safety Acts Index It can be deduced that though the percentage on the Safety Act Index has improved, the control charts show a different picture where the entire process is out of control despite there being an improvement on the run charts, which conforms with fact that the factory and industry is still in development stage where there is room for immense development. Another problem that was commonly given in the feedback is the lack of management commitment of leadership, inability of the leadership to appreciate the hazards and over importance given to bring productivity as compared to giving equal importance on safety and production.
