Wombat Software has a question.  What Safety metrics offer the most value?

We want to provide Safety Professionals with at a glance access to key safety metrics.  Above all we want to help them focus and prioritize their attention in the areas that will have the most impact on safety.

We have asked our amazing network of safety professionals what metrics would provide them with the most actionable insights.

These conversations highlighted safety metrics that offer the most value. 

  • Toolbox Talk Frequency – Data shows that companies that performs daily toolbox talks have a 85% decrease in total recordable incident rates (TRIRR).
  • Worker Participation – Every employee should be actively participating in the company’s safety program. Here are some metrics to measure employee engagement.
  • Number of safety meetings attended
  • Amount of training courses completed
  • Total inspections conducted and submitted
