Leading Safety Indicators: New Strategies for Tracking and Improving Safety Performance

Webinar Rebroadcast: Tuesday, September 26, 2017

1:30 p.m. to 3:00 p.m. Eastern / 10:30 a.m. to 12:00 p.m. Pacific


WEBINAR SNAPSHOT: Learn how to apply effective, risk-based, leading-indicator metrics for driving superior safety performance.



Tracking performance is a critical component of continuous improvement and success—but many organizations struggle to identify measurements that have a strong correlation with positive safety performance.

Are you making the mistake of relying exclusively on lagging indicators, such as incident rates, lost or restricted workdays, and workers’ compensation costs? Although these can be useful indicators, especially with respect to benchmarking with similar industries, they only provide an “after the fact” reactive view of your safety program performance.

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, and personnel resources, to identify accident casual factors and correct them before an accident happens. This strategy is also an excellent opportunity to increase your overall employee participation in your safety program.

Join us on September 26 for a rebroadcast of a widely popular webinar that will teach you how to identify the strengths and weaknesses of leading and lagging indicators as the critical first step in developing a comprehensive EHS performance measurement process. Safety attorney Barry Spurlock will reveal how to achieve ongoing success using leading safety indicators as a cornerstone.

You’ll learn how to:

  • Identify leading measures and metrics, and how to use them in an effective way
  • Select EHS measures that drive high performance safety management success for your company or at specific facilities
  • Develop metrics based on risk and reduction
  • Distinguish KPIs and KRIs as they pertain to safety performance
  • Incorporate benchmarking considerations in your EHS measurement systems
  • Use audit results as a key measure of safety performance improvement
  • Track key EHS metrics
  • Use measures to motivate, drive performance and foster continuous improvement
  • Objectively maximize the use of leading safety measures
  • Embrace the qualitative value of EHS measure and how to resist pressures to avoid them
  • Communicate EHS performance factors with the CEO, CFO, COO, and the board of directors to increase leadership buy-in and supervisory accountability
