We have probably all heard the phrase “what gets measured, gets done”. Traditionally, safety outcomes have been measured primarily using injury and illness rates, which are considered lagging indicators. However, lately the Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) has taken steps to encourage employers to incorporate leading indicators into their safety metrics. Leading indicators are best defined as the conditions and behaviors that are tied to better safety outcomes.
Gaining management buy-in for investment in workplace safety and health training programs can sometimes be complicated.
Identifying a credible process to evaluate critical measurable aspects of your program requires careful thought and consideration. The benefits of conducting an analysis include showing the contribution your training program makes to the organization versus the cost and demonstrates the value safety and health training provides to the overall success of the organization.
An effective safety program requires support and commitment from both above and below—from senior leadership, front-line employees, and many layers in between. The EHS function must often operate between these spheres, trying to gain buy-in and leverage support from multiple levels of an organization. How is your team driving safety leadership and engagement success?
