We provided a voluntary online survey on this site to establish how Behavioral Safety is used in Industry. 1404 company's voluntarily responded. The following report provides a graphical breakdown of the responses received by the end of Dec 2007.
Thank you to those who responded, you have helped to provide invaluable data with which to progress the field.
Not every question was answered by every respondent. The results indicated below, exclude information about the missing cases, unless a 'no response' category is shown. For ease of interpretation, some of the responses have been amalgamated. These are marked with asterisks ** .
The first set of questions were about the respondents country, industry, the number of employees and whether or not they were using Behavioral Safety.
The results for country show most Behavioral Safety proceses had been implemented in North America and Europe, followed by Asia and Australasia. Behavioral Safety has only recently began in Africa, South America, the Middle East and the Carribean, indicating that Behavioral Safety has now become a world-wide phenomenen.
The next question was asked to discover which industries respondents came from. This showed that the vast bulk came from Manufacturing, Oil & Gas, Chemicals, Construction and Mining, although most industrial sectors were represented.
In terms of the number of employees at respondents sites, the vast bulk were between 1-800 employees. However, both smaller and larger numbers were represented, suggesting Behavioral Safety is applicable to both large and small employers.
