Launch Workplace Safety to New Heights with Weever’s Behaviour-Based Safety Observations (BBSO) Platform

We know that ensuring the safety and well-being of your manufacturing employees is a top priority for any organization. Safeguarding the welfare of each employee isn’t just a responsibility—it’s a strategic advantage. That’s where Weever’s Behaviour-Based Safety Observations (BBSO) platform comes into play, offering a state-of-the-art approach to enhancing workplace safety.

Weever’s BBSO platform provides critical insights through detailed and systematic assessments of safe and unsafe behaviors. These insights pave the way for proactive strategies that significantly reduce the risk of workplace incidents. With these tools, your organisation can move from reactive safety measures to a robust, preventative safety culture.

“The key to a successful BBSO programme lies not only in meticulous preparation but also in securing complete buy-in from every level of the team,” says Steve McBride, CEO of Weever. McBride emphasises the importance of a tailored checklist focusing on critical safe behaviours, ensuring they are consistently monitored and reinforced.

With Weever, you’re not just implementing a safety programme; you’re revolutionising your safety culture. This holistic approach ensures that safety becomes a core part of your operational philosophy, promoting a safer, more efficient, and more harmonious workplace.

Transform Safety Protocols with Weever’s Precision-Engineered Checklists

At the core of exceptional safety practices in manufacturing lies a precisely refined checklist, but not just a checklist. Weever takes this to the next level by focusing sharply on the critical safe behaviours essential for maintaining a secure work environment. 

By collaborating intensively with safety teams, Weever helps pinpoint precise actions and practices—from the diligent use of personal protective equipment (PPE) to the strict adherence to safety protocols. Where there are “at-risk” behaviours, action items are created automatically, streamlining the system and ensuring compliance with corrective actions.

“Weever’s checklists do more than list safety measures—they ensure each task on the shop floor is performed with the utmost safety,” says Steve McBride, CEO at Weever. This precision in detailing safe task execution allows for an authentic assessment of the adoption of safety practices, enhancing the overall safety culture.

Streamline Safety with Weever’s Essential Checklist Components:

  • Target Critical Behaviours: Define and monitor key safe behaviours that are crucial in your specific environment.
  • In-Depth Observations: Move beyond basic standards with detailed guidance on safely performing tasks.
  • Automation: Pre-configured automation to happen in the background in real-time to limit the amount of administration needed to maintain the programme.
  • Adaptive Updates: Keep your checklist dynamic, refining it with new insights and following any changes or incidents.
  • Ease of Use: Designed for simplicity and efficiency to ensure compliance and superior data quality.


With Weever, you don’t just implement a checklist; you elevate your organisation’s commitment to a sustainable safety culture, ensuring consistent practices and spotting trends that drive continuous improvement.

Safety Champions: Empower Observers, Transform Your Culture

At the forefront of enhancing workplace safety through Behaviour-Based Safety Observations (BBSO) are your observers. BBSOs are the unsung heroes of a thriving safety culture. But are they equipped to reach their full potential? 

Their role is crucial in identifying safe and at-risk behaviours, providing impactful feedback, and steering your safety culture towards excellence. Weever equips your BBSOs to become active guardians of safety. Our shop-floor-tested training programme sharpens their skills in:

  • Spotting the Subtle: Tips to amplify observation skills to identify both safe and at-risk behaviours.
  • The Power of Feedback: Delivering constructive coaching that drives behaviour change.
  • Calibrated Consistency: Standardised scoring methods for accurate data and clear insights.
  • Deep Dive into the BBSO Process: Trainees gain a thorough understanding of the observation mechanics and the objectives behind BBSO, ensuring they grasp the full context of their responsibilities.

Beyond Observations: Forge a Culture of Safety Ownership

Trapped with a safety programme that simply observes? Weever ignites engagement. Our BBSO framework transforms every team member into a safety champion.

Here’s the Weever Difference:

  • Hearts & Minds: We go beyond setup, fostering a culture of shared ownership. Employees understand their impact and become invested. “It’s all about creating a culture of shared ownership,” explains Steve McBride. “When workers feel like they have a stake in the success of the programme, they’re much more likely to embrace it and contribute meaningfully.”
  • Celebrate Safety Stars: Recognise those who demonstrate and champion safe practices. Boost morale and reinforce safety first.
  • Respectful Collaboration: We balance rigorous observation with a spirit of collaboration. Safety and respect go hand-in-hand.

Never Settle for Safe Enough: Evolve Your BBSO for Lasting Safety

Safety shouldn’t be stagnant. At Weever, we understand that implementing a Behaviour-Based Safety Observations (BBSO) programme is not a one-time task—it’s a progressive journey towards safety perfection. “A BBSO programme is not “set it and forget it”; it’s about constant evolution and responsiveness,” says Steve McBride, CEO of Weever. Weever’s BBSO programme is a living, breathing entity that continuously improves your safety culture.

  • Proactive, not Passive: Regular updates keep pace with evolving standards and your organisation’s needs. Weever encourage regular evaluations and updates to your safety checklists. These adjustments keep your protocols in sync with the latest safety standards and organisational needs.
  • Safety is Everyone’s Business: Collaborative feedback from all levels surfaces risks and best practices. We foster a culture of continuous feedback, involving frontline workers, safety managers, and other stakeholders in a collaborative process to surface new risks and share best practices.
  • Data Drives Decisions: Actionable insights pinpoint areas for improvement and maximise safety impact. By analysing trends and pinpointing areas for improvement, Weever helps you refine your BBSO programme, directing resources for maximum impact on critical safety metrics like incident rates and time-lost injuries.
  • Adaptability is Key: A flexible programme ensures long-term safety success. Adopting a mindset of continuous growth with Weever means your BBSO programme remains flexible and responsive.
