Proactive Safety: How to Use Leading Indicators to Prevent Incidents

Team Safesite


Last Updated: November 30, 2020

As a safety pro, you’ve heard some big talk from others in the industry. They have reduced their recordable incident rate to practically nothing or even brought their lost time incident rate (LTIR) to zero.

How do they do it? There’s a good chance they got it done with leading indicators.

In the world of safety, success is determined not just by the outcome you achieve but the methods and tools you use to get there. Safety is measurable, predictable, and repeatable, but luck just happens and can evaporate at any time.

Leading indicators are measurement tools that give you the power and data you need to shore up safety program weaknesses and reach your data-driven goals. With leading indicators, you can measure success in real-time and actively prevent incidents.
