Safety Performance and Why It Matters
October 31, 2019 @ 2:00 pm - 3:00 pmFree
Improving safety performance is a team effort that is based on data that easily can be monitored and measured to prioritize where safety programs can have the most impact. When it comes to improving performance in Health and Safety, organizations must leverage their most important asset – their tools and data – to improve future H&S performance.
Better tools and processes give workers the power to improve their performance through data-driven decision-making and enhanced situational awareness. The result is stronger EHSQ practice that drives improved overall business results and revenue. Tomorrow’s businesses will rest on a strong foundation consisting of rigorous EHSQ performance, singular dedication to customer satisfaction, and a passion for innovation.
Important reasons to improve data collection and analysis to enhance Health & Safety performance include:
- Predict workplace injuries
- Monitor and benchmark safety culture
- Improve compliance
- Tie safety to productivity
