EHS Metrics: How To Track Safety Performance Using Leading And Lagging Indicators

Webinar: ID# 1001758
About This Course:
Tracking performance is critical to continual improvement and success, but in the area of safety, many organizations have struggled to identify measurements that have a strong correlation to successful safety performance.

Many companies make the mistake of relying exclusively on lagging indicators, such as incident rates, lost or restricted workdays, or workers compensation costs. Although these can be useful and valuable indicators, they only provide an "after the fact" reactive view of your safety program.

A better practice is to incorporate leading indicators, which identify, track, measure, and correct the factors that have a strong correlation with potential accidents, into your overall safety metrics strategy. The goal is to use this information to identify accident casual factors and correct them before an accident happens.

Attend this in-depth webinar to learn the differences between leading and lagging indicators and their associated strengths and weaknesses-this understanding is the critical first step in developing a comprehensive EHS performance measurement process!

Learning Objectives:
  • Identify trailing (lagging) and leading measures and metrics and use them in an effective way
  • Select EHS measures that drive high performance safety management success for your company or at specific facilities
  • Best practices to create the right balance in your safety performance measurement between leading and lagging measures
  • Incorporate benchmarking considerations in your EHS measurement systems
  • Use audit results as a key measure of safety performance improvement
  • Track key EHS metrics-and why those EHS measures could have the greatest impact on your company's safety and health program!
  • Use measures to motivate, drive performance, and foster continuous improvement
  • Objectively maximize the use of leading safety measures
  • Embrace the qualitative value of EHS measures-and why safety professionals must resist pressures to avoid them
  • Effectively-and successfully-communicate EHS performance factors with CEOs, CFOs, COOs, and the board of directors to increase leadership buy-in and supervisory accountability
