As organisations continue to have incidents resulting from a behavioral component they seek new and innovative approaches to engage the workforce and target at-risk behaviours. The Behavioural Based Safety (BBS) process aims to prevent injury to the workforce through reinforcement of safe behaviors and reduction of at-risk behaviors in the workplace.

Many organisations have implemented a behavioural based safety program, however despite this incidents continue to occur and organisations are recognize that something is missing from their programs. Traditional approaches are failing to address at-risk behaviours and require a fresh approach to engage people.

Unlike traditional training approaches, which typically rely heavily on theoretical approaches to human interaction, drama based training engages participants in practical skill development.

This paper provides a thorough discussion of how this innovative new approach to safety training has been successfully implemented and transitioned into an organisation with an existing program. Organisations that have an existing behavioural based safety program in place will benefit from guidance on how to implement a training program without loosing or compromising the ownership of existing programs.
