There is a difference between “caring” and “acting.” The mission of behavior-based safety (BBS) is to promote and support “actively caring.” In this article, I want to introduce the STEP process of actively caring for people’s safety.
The STEP process - See, Thank, Enter, Pass – starts when individuals look for Actively Care for People (AC4P) behavior from others (See) and show gratitude for that AC4P behavior with a green wristband (Thank) embossed with the words: “Actively Caring for People” and a unique identification number. The wristband recipient is requested to document this expression of gratitude (including the nature of the AC4P behavior) at the AC4P Website (www.ac4p.org), along with the wristband number. A recognition process is thus entered at the AC4P website and tracked worldwide (Enter) as positive AC4P communication. Then the wristband recipient is requested to look for AC4P behavior from another person and pass on the wristband (Pass).
