MARTINEZ OROPESA, Ciro. The behavior safety management: a process that works?. Med. segur. trab. [online]. 2015, vol.61, n.241, pp.424-435. ISSN 1989-7790.

The behavior based safety process (PGSBC), is based on observations of people developing tasks and getting feedback in the form of positive reinforcement in real time, with the aim of eliminating risky behaviors observed and, in some of the more advanced cases, to modify the environmental and organizational factors that cause them. This reflection was developed with the aim of providing a summarized framework on behavior based safety and provide data and rationale that highlights the benefits and impacts for businesses. Reviews of important information published on the process results were performed. From this reflection the changes and positive impacts on safety management in many companies in recent decades have been deducted and summarized, based on proactive and reactive indicators of Industrial safety.

Keywords : Behavior based safety process; Safe Behavior; Industrial Safety; Occupational Accidents.
