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.
Even the safest work environments can be susceptible to injuries and incidents. How you report these occurrences can go a long way in preventing future accidents and helping your company remain profitable.
While documenting every incident and hazard that occurs in your organization can be time-consuming and complicated, recording these events can be your most effective solution for EHS improvement.
Not everyone realizes that a good safety program can benefit a company in some surprising ways, too. The most surprising, and perhaps the most important? Achieving a favorable return on safety investment.
Your patients rely on you to take care of their physical health needs, so they might not give much thought to the overall safety you provide. But your EHS is just as important as your medical practices, both to your patients and to your team.
With the brow-raising security breaches in politics and e-commerce the past couple years, the same question on many minds remains: How secure is my data?
Whether you’re building a single home or an entire strip mall, you do whatever it takes to keep your construction project on schedule and within budget. But your profits (and your reputation) can come to a grinding halt with just one safety slip up on the job site.
Your employees provide the backbone of your company, and keeping them healthy and safe on the job is a top priority, especially in a work environment like manufacturing plants and factories. But safety isn’t something that comes naturally to a company; rather, it’s something that must be practiced and refined daily.
