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):

  • "Both number and severity.”
  • "Daily inspections.”
  • "We don't measure.”
  • "Measure?”
