IMPROVING WORKPLACE SAFETY
Safety Performance Solutions & Software
Workplace Safety Performance Solutions
For nearly every employer, employees are a company’s most vital asset and keeping them safe is critical to the company’s success. According to the Occupational Health and Safety Administration, every year, more than 4.1 million workers suffer a serious job-related injury or illness.
Establishing specific safety goals and then measuring progress towards those goals is one way to ensure companies are actively working to decrease workplace injuries while promoting employee health and a safe working environment. Briotix can help your company improve its workplace safety and health through a wide-range of solutions that address both prevention and rehabilitation.
Measuring Health & Safety Performance
Measuring a company’s health and safety performance provides information of the current safety status of the company as well as progress on strategies put in place to reduce the risk of employee injuries. Staying apprised of your current safety status is beneficial because:
- Inform on what policies are working to improve safety and while need reworking
- Management can identify areas were assistance is needed
- Create a feedback loop for continual improvement
Additionally, measuring the health and safety performance of a company provides data which is needed to make strategic and data-driven decisions. Health and safety data can help with decisions involving:
- Prioritization of resources
- Establishing reasonable and achievable goals
- Ways in which progress may be best achieved
Safety Performance Indicators
Establishing Key Performance Indicators (KPIs) that represent your company’s safety vision and strategy is the first step in accurately measuring health and safety initiatives. Spending time to create relevant KPIs will keep management from becoming inundated with data that is irrelevant to meeting safety goals.
To create a concise yet comprehensive list of KPIs, critical safety questions about the organization should be answered and then KPIs established to address those answers. These questions can include:
- What is the maturity of the safety program at your organization?
- When evaluating safety culture, where is it now and where do you want it to go?
- What behaviors need to be changed to establish the safety culture you are trying to establish?
The answers to these questions will guide the creation of relevant KPIs. For example, if your company has a less mature safety program, goals may focus on reducing major incidents and promoting overall wellness. If your company has a mature program, your KPIs may focus on minor incidents and subtle messaging changes.
