Organisations generate a wealth of routine health and safety data as part of day-to-day operations that provide a useful proxy measure of how well they manage their health and safety risks as an organisation.
Analysing this data to determine the extent to which current improvement initiatives are suitably targeted and to provide evidence to help decide where best to target future efforts forms a key component part of an organisation’s health and safety management system.
Organisations are also looking to find ways to improve their health and safety performance by comparing key elements of it to that of their peers as part of a systematic approach to learning from “best in class”.
Aims and objectives
This industry use case aims to provide organisations with the tools and supporting information they need to carry out effective health and safety performance benchmarking exercises. It aims to start by building tools benchmarking metrics built around lagging indicators of performance, principally, accident frequency rates. However, once the basic building blocks enabling organisations to benchmark their accident frequency rates have been built, the project will look to widen the scope to include leading indicators of health and safety performance.
