Recognizing that there is a behavioral component in which contributes over 80 percent factors lead to accidents, while current safety initiatives are mostly focusing on systems, conditions and/or procedures rather than on people's behavior, started in 2007, Chevron IndoAsia Business Unit (IBU), has decided to implement the Behavior Based Safety (BBS) as one of key safety initiatives which aimed at preventing injury to workforce through reinforcement of safe behaviors and reduction of at-risk behaviors in the workplace.

The scope covers 7,062 employees and 12,275 contractors at 4 Operating Group (OPG) located in various locations, on shore and off shore, oil & gas and geothermal & power operations (GPO), scattered thousand miles away on 3 different islands across Indonesia.

This paper mainly describes the simultaneous deployment in field and office environment which scope covers 1,063 employee and 1,119 contractors at 4 different locations: 3 separated sites of GPO and Jakarta Office, Chevron-IBU Headquarter.

There are several different approaches conducted in deploying the plan at each location to ensure the buying in of this initiative, which includes BBS process governance, leadership involvement, resources allocation and promotional/training plan.

The information provided in this paper could be helpful for any industries deploying BBS program in field and/or office environment.

By the end of 2008, the deployment timeline has been running as planned into a full cycle process. Steering Committee's BBS related skills have been developed through several mandatory workshops.
