This webinar will guide you in establishing the right safety metrics for your organization. You will learn about steps you can implement to improve your organization's safety performance.

Why Should You Attend:

Safety metrics can help discover problems before they negatively impact your employees - and your bottom line. And by selecting the right things to measure, your organization can prevent expensive mistakes in the workplace by fixing any problems before they can impact your business.

But what, exactly, are the right metrics for your organization? Is it the traditional recordable rate, severity rate, cost of accidents, near miss numbers, physical audit scores, or perception surveys? What about leading indicators, trailing indicators, or incident rates. How about the number of accidents or the rise – or fall – in your insurance premiums?

This webinar will present clear and effective steps that you can take to improve safety performance through safety metrics. This course covers the types of measures, developing a performance measurement system, reporting performance measurement to senior management and other topics critical to safety metrics.

  • Define key terms in safety metrics.

Topic Background:

To manage something you must be able to measure it, and to measure something you have to be able to define it. In environmental health & safety management, a metric is the measurable performance of an environmental or safety activity or program within an organization. Through use of metrics, we can drive organizational performance toward more efficient use of resources, improved compliance and profitability, and improved general health and well-being of the organization and our workers.
