|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?
