Leading Safety Indicators: New Strategies For Tracking And Improving Safety Performance

Webinar: ID# 1001838
About This Course:
Tracking performance is critical to continual improvement and success, but when it comes to safety, many companies struggle to identify measurements with a strong correlation to successful safety performance.

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

Conversely, some companies have developed systems that only use leading indicators-that is, the measurements that identify, track, measure, and correct the factors that have a strong correlation with potential accidents. The goal is to use this information to identify accident casual factors and correct them before an accident happens.

So what do you measure, and how do you use measurements to improve EHS performance? What balance of measures is right for your organization? How do you secure staff and management buy-in of the EHS measurement process in order to drive continuous safety improvement for the organization?

Join us for an in-depth webinar 29 to learn which indicators could supercharge your performance-and which could hold you back-as you develop a comprehensive EHS performance measurement process. Our presenter, a seasoned safety and health consultant, will provide proven strategies for choosing the right mix of indicators to drive safety success for your organization.

  • Use leading measures to motivate, drive performance, and foster continuous improvement
  • Apply successful strategies for objectively maximizing leading safety measures
