Abstract: How low can you go? Conventional measures of HSE performance have included Incidence Rates of OSHA recordable injuries and illnesses, lost work day case rates and the number of environmental excursions. These measures are reactive and, on the good news side, they have become so low in our industry that year to year comparisons are imperfect measures of our HSE program s progress. So what can we do in our businesses, driven by operational excellence programs and the expectation of world-class performance, to show continuous improvement? We need improved measurements! Let s include proactive metrics that measure HSE program performance. This paper will discuss a variety of measurement strategies with specific examples of how they can be used.
