Most organisations collect some form of health and safety data. Most commonly it is used retrospectively to report on past performance and, in essence, describe what types of accident happened, where they happened, when and who was affected.

But some of the higher value questions that are important to proactively manage health and safety require a more meaningful use of data, for example, why did it happen, when might it happen again and what do we do next if it does?

This one-day course introduces the concept of data-driven insights and explores how to use data effectively to improve an organisation's health and safety outcomes. It covers how to collect data around known precursors of accidents and how to feed it into a structured analytic process.

Learning outcomes

Delegates will be provided with information that will help them to:

  • Understand the importance of effective measurement in relation to health and safety management
  • Understand the difference between lagging and leading indicators and how each should be used effectively
  • Understand the key components of a health and safety management system
  • Know about the principles of reactive monitoring and why it is important
  • Know about the key steps in developing a performance management model
  • Know how to use data on a large scale

What the course will cover

This course covers the main uses of data and types of indicators, looking at past and future events, applications to health and safety, key measurements, organisational cultural factors and the links between data, effective management systems and success.

Who should attend?

This course is aimed at health and safety managers or practitioners, those in performance management roles and others who are involved in the collection and analysis of data in relation to health and safety and who want to learn from their past performance to prevent future adverse health and safety outcomes.
