Three Best Practices for Using Data to Improve Safety

Three Best Practices for Using Data to Improve Safety

The reports you need to make data-driven decisions about your safety programs will adequately equip you to maintain a safe and healthy workforce. Use these best practices to stay on top of your evaluations and keep your safety procedures as effective as possible.

1. Configure Your Reports to Match Your Business

Configure the reports within your EHS software to align with both your business setup (think locations, departments, lines of business, etc.) and your existing safety processes.

2. Use a Healthy Mix of Reports

Using a mix of leading and lagging indicators will give you a holistic view of your safety procedures’ past, present, and future effectiveness.

3. Establish an Auditable Workflow

Leading and lagging indicators show you what has happened and what may happen. But another vital piece of the puzzle is answering the question, “What’s in process right now?”

Putting together an established and documented workflow will ensure that all required tasks get completed and nothing slips through the cracks.
