Lab Safety / Lab Safety Management Certificate

Metrics and Key Performance Indicators (KPIs)

To borrow and bend a quote, what we choose to measure, matters. We can measure lagging indicators, like injuries, leading indicators, like risk assessments, or both. It is challenging to decide what objectives and key results, and key performance indicators to collect, measure, track, report, emphasize, and manage toward. This course will help you decide which ones, why, and how best to do so.

Learning Outcomes:

  • List at least 10 safety or risk metrics,
  • Describe how objectives and key results relate to safety KPIs,
  • List at least four KPIs for safety or risk,
