OHS Performance Planning & Evaluation
“What gets measured gets done! “is a vital doctrine of modern day business management. As this is equally pertinent to H&S management, major organisations include HSE performance metrics and key performance indicators (KPI) in their annual business planning cycles.
To do this however, prudence is necessary in a number of areas, including clear understanding of goals and objectives, performance metrics, technical definitions and terminology, industry norms and targets, statutory requirements and reporting cycles.
Another important principle in developing and implementing such a system is ensuring that all sectors of the organisation’s activities, geographies and workforce are included in the measurement regime.
