Abstract: CCBS Behavioral Safety Accreditation The mission of the Cambridge Center for Behavioral Studies, to advance the scientific study of behavior and its humane applications to practical problems, and the prevention and relief of human suffering, is realized in part through the development and recognition of safe behavior in the workplace. The Center’s initiative to accredit workplace safety programs based on the principles of behavior has now recognized and awarded accreditation to sites in four corporations. In the panel discussion the criteria for CCBS accreditation, a behavior based program and the demonstration of exemplary and sustained performance, will be described, as will the accreditation application and site visit. Performance data from accredited companies will be presented. The side effects and collateral social impact of accreditation on the cultures of accredited companies will be discussed.
