Abstract This article presents the process of behaviour-based safety, a method based on observation and feedback. Workers observe how various tasks are carried out by their colleagues, and positive or negative remarks are discussed with the objective of improving safety within the enterprise. The behaviour-based safety method includes four key elements: workers' participation and management involvement; systematic approach; observation walks within the enterprise aimed at improving working methods; positive feedback.
