What are the most common ways to measure safety on job sites?
A survey conducted in 2016 revealed that approximately one-half of survey respondents measure the safety of their job sites by the number of incidents per day, month, or year, while a further 20.6% measure safety by the number of days since the last workplace injury. Nearly 12% of respondents specified other measures (or lack thereof):
- "All of the above.”
- "Both number and severity.”
- "Daily inspections.”
- "We don't measure.”
