Measurement of Safety Performance
By Dan Petersen
In the latest book from one of America’s leading consultants on safety management and organizational behavior, Dan Petersen, Measurement of Safety Performance looks at the types of safety measurements currently used by companies and shows why they are inadequate for a realistic assessment of safety performance. Instead of “measuring failures” by using OSHA incident rates and accident statistics and worker’s compensation claims, which only measure incidents, Petersen argues that the best way to measure a company’s safety performance at all levels of the company is to use different types of tools, such as perception surveys and scored assessments like audits, to get a true measure of safety. Measures should exist for different levels of the company, from employees, first-line management, middle management, to upper management. He also suggests that getting employees involved in the safety process is key to making safety measures not just statistics in a company spreadsheet.
