Leading indicators can help your organization prevent worker fatalities, injuries and illnesses, and strengthen other safety and health outcomes in the workplace. Leading indicators are proactive and preventive measures that can demonstrate the effectiveness of safety and health activities and reveal potential problems in your safety and health program. Many employers are familiar with lagging indicators, which measure the occurrence and frequency of past events, such as the number or rate of injuries, illnesses and fatalities. While lagging indicators can alert you to a failure of control measures or reveal the presence of a hazard, leading indicators inform you whether your safety and health activities help prevent incidents. A good safety and health system uses leading indicators to drive change and measure effectiveness. This live webinar aims to increase awareness of leading indicators as a valuable tool to help improve your safety or health program, regardless of what you have included in your program, or what stage you may be at in your program. OSHA’s Lisa Long will review the guidelines that explore leading indicators as a safety and health metric and explain how they can help your organization improve performance and create an action plan for implementation and review. ASSP’s Gary Lopez will review how you can develop, use and measure leading indicators and explain some of the key initiatives like the ANSI/ASSP Z16 standard being developed.
