There’s no shortage of metrics to capture in your environmental, health and safety strategy. Figuring out which ones can make the biggest impact can seem daunting, but many of them are critical to your organization’s success. When creating your EHS strategy, recording your Lost Time Incident Rate (LTIR) should be a priority.
When measuring the success of your EHS program, many companies look at the number of days an employee stays home due to a work-related injury. But looking at the days of missed work alone leaves out two other important aspects of calculating how a work-related incident affects your company: restricted work and transferred work.
Part your EHS strategy’s success depends on capturing the right metrics, and then knowing how to use those metrics to improve your EHS operations.

Don’t let the name scare you – big data in this case refers to combining multiple data sources to detect trends, patterns, and insights outside of individual data sets. This concept is becoming more and more integrated with companies of all industries and sizes, from leading marketing initiatives to gauging turnover to monitoring sales and profits. But one of data’s biggest opportunities in the workplace is also one of its most underutilized: environmental health and safety departments.
