    Energizing your safety committees by doing safety differently

    Energizing your safety committees by doing safety differently

    Too often, we allow our safety committees to become stale. Traditional safety is driven by compliance and our desire to get employees to follow the rules and not make mistakes. It's time to think about safety a bit differently. We need to understand that human error does and will happen, and adjust our thinking so that instead of being surprised by error and failure, we listen and learn from those who do the work. Using these concepts, along with energizing activities, you'll learn how to move your safety committee from compliance to having a real impact on employee safety.

    Safety Excellence via Leading Indicators

    Companies often evaluate the effectiveness of their safety programs by tracking metrics such as accident numbers or rates. These are outcome metrics, also known as "lagging indicators." In other words, they measure results of past actions. Lagging indicators allow us to compare one time period to another. However, exclusively using lagging indicators to evaluate one's safety program can be problematic. A more effective approach is to include proactive, preventive, and predictive measures, also known as "leading indicators." Leading indicators measure events leading up to injuries, illnesses, and other incidents and can help to reveal potential problems in your safety and health program before they occur.

    Energizing your safety committees by doing safety differently

    Too often, we allow our safety committees to become stale. Traditional safety is driven by compliance and our desire to get employees to follow the rules and not make mistakes. It's time to think about safety a bit differently. We need to understand that human error does and will happen, and adjust our thinking so that instead of being surprised by error and failure, we listen and learn from those who do the work. Using these concepts, along with energizing activities, you'll learn how to move your safety committee from compliance to having a real impact on employee safety.
