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.
Delegates will be provided with information that will help them
- 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
