Abstract : The most effective behavioral reliability programs include four elements: (1) Behavioral criteria of unreliability, (2) Professional judgement, (3) Training, and (4) Employee assistance program. Some data exists which show more acts of sabotage, theft, or vandalism occur in environments in which screening hurdles are minimal and other security precautions are minimal. A behavioral reliability program must include training in observation skills for the individuals charged with the responsibility of ensuring reliability of their subordinates. It must be linked with a screening program through definition of criteria and the judgment of a professional psychologist or psychiatrist who knows the job environment. Finally, it must provide resources for the employee or individual who, once screened in, is now denied access.
