Safety Metrics provides managers with a practical guide for evaluating the efficiency of their company’s current safety and health processes and making fact-based decisions that continually improve overall performance.
This comprehensive book, written for safety professionals with limited exposure to statistics and safety performance measurement strategies, shows readers how to assess trends, inconsistencies, data, safety climates, and training so they can determine the need for corrective action before an accident or injury occurs.
To help readers develop an effective safety metrics program, the author includes an overview of safety metrics, data collection and analysis; a comprehensive collection of tools and techniques; and detailed procedures for data collection, analysis and presentation. In addition, each chapter includes exercises and questions that allow readers to practice and review what they’ve learned. All answers are provided in an appendix.
Techniques and tools discussed in this book include descriptive and inferential statistics, cause-and-effect analysis, measures of variability, probability, run charts and control charts, trending, and forecasting. Safety metric program development, implementation and evaluation techniques are presented as well.
