Driving Safety Transformation by Analyzing Leading Indicators

Nov 18, 2021

Sponsored by ProcessMap


Sponsored by ProcessMap. Traditionally, organizations have focused on tracking and reporting lagging safety indicators like total recordable incident rate (TRIR) or lost-time incident rate (LTIR) to measure their safety performance. However, as occupational safety and health (OSH) programs continue to mature and technology plays a more fundamental role in the digital transformation of these programs, OSH leaders are increasingly focusing on analyzing leading safety indicators in real-time so they can respond quickly to emerging safety risks and course-correct before it is too late.

What you will learn:
  • Assess how digital solutions can provide real-time visibility to leading safety indicators like near-miss incidents, behavior-based safety observations, job hazard and risk assessments, proactive audits and inspections.
  • Examine how leading safety indicators can help focus on continuous improvement and drive accountability.
  • Evaluate the impact of managing leading indicators on safety lagging indicators, and improving the safety culture within an organization.
