The Cambridge Center for Behavioral Studies™ takes pride in recognizing companies who achieve world-class behavior-based safety.
This seal tells the world that your workplace meets the high standards of the Cambridge Center for Behavioral Studies™. A recognized source of scientific information on behavior.
Accreditation recognizes exemplary long-term performance in the application of behavioral principles to workplace safety. Know that your programs meet principles of behavior-based safety standards.
Recognizes responsible and effective behavioral management
Many companies have times when people were hurt or injured at work. Safety engineering and management have considerably improved conditions over many decades of research and effort. Leaders and managers of companies learn that managing safety behaviors at all levels of the company is key to achieving and sustaining outstanding safety performance. Accreditation verifies that your program’s behavior management systems are helping people work together to identify risks, change critical behavior, prevent losses and save lives.
Provides expert and neutral third-party assessment and feedback
A thorough review of your program and an accreditation site visit will provide specific feedback and recommendations from behavioral safety experts on your program’s strengths and development needs. Your program and your people will benefit from this feedback while learning from CCBS safety and behavioral experts, who are there to assess your program, not sell consulting services.
Challenges everyone to do better
As a certified or an accredited company, you assume leadership in safety and stand out in your industry. Leaders innovate and set an example for others. Your company will help others achieve similar safety performance through CCBS standards. Others will look to you for guidance.
Brings a competitive advantage in business
Customers value companies who care about the safety of their employees. High quality safety performance is good business.
Commission on Accreditation for Behavioral Safety
The Commission is comprised of CCBS experts who are experienced in both the implementation and evaluation of high quality behavioral safety program as well as behavioral research.
To identify and recognize through the award of Accreditation and dissemination of best-practices, exemplary workplace programs that have demonstrated sustained effectiveness in the application of principles of behavior to improve and sustain the safety of employees.

The Application Process
To be eligible for Accreditation applicants must demonstrate:
- The company’s or site’s Principles of Behavior Based Safety (PBBS) program is a valid behavioral program (i.e., the program measures behavior change and solutions are based on principles of behavior),
- The PBBS program is effective (e.g., produces increases in critical safety behaviors and decreases in incidence rates or other safety metrics that exceed company-wide and / or industry averages),
- That after implementation, the PBBS program is sustained and safety performance improvements are maintained for a minimum of three continuous years.
Applicants with developing PBBS programs not yet achieving the above eligibility criteria can apply for review at the Bronze of Silver certification levels. The CCBS Accreditation Commission may then contract to assess the organization’s program and submit an objective review of its current operations and provide recommendations to guide program development.
