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


Tracking safety 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 risk 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. 
Use this on-demand 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 use them effectively to drive safety performance
  • Develop metrics based on risk and risk reduction
  • Distinguish KPIs and KRIs as they pertain to safety performance
  • Incorporate benchmarking considerations in your EHS measurement systems
  • Analyze audit results to measure safety performance improvement 
  • Track key EHS metrics
  • Select and use measures that motivate, drive performance and foster continuous improvement
  • Maximize the use of leading safety measures
  • Embrace the qualitative value of EHS measure and resist pressures to avoid them
  • Communicate EHS performance factors with the C-suite to increase leadership buy-in and supervisory accountability
