Taking the Measure of Your Safety Program through Safety Communication
Is your safety program working? How do you know? Tracking injuries, illnesses, and workers’ compensation claims is a good start, but there are other indicators that can give you a broader, deeper, clearer picture of how your safety program is functioning.
Most safety program metrics begin with required injury and illness recordkeeping, and with workers’ compensation claims and x-mods. These can certainly give you a picture of the effectiveness of your program, but if you expand your metrics to include some additional indicators, you’ll give yourself more information that you can use to determine whether your program is improving or deteriorating, where you need to improve, what your safety priorities should be, and whether your interventions are working
