Unions and behavior-based safety: always the odd couple?
Winn GL; Frederick LJ; Church G
Prof Saf 1999 Dec; 44(12):32-34
Many unions oppose behavior-based safety programs, the authors state, because they believe such programs encourage 'blaming the victim'. The case study presented tests whether a BBS program can succeed in a union environment. 'This project began as a sincere effort by labor and management to provide a meaningful safety program and address identified problems'.
