Leading Indicators for Workplace Health and Safety

Alberta Occupational Health and Safety (OHS) has published their latest Leading Indicators user guide as a new resource. Leading indicators are aspects of workplace activities that can be used to improve OHS outcomes prior to an unwanted outcome occurring.

A familiar example of a leading indicator might be the legislated hazard assessment and control process: a preventative approach to reducing the risk of workplace injury and illness. If changed, leading indicators are expected to change related outcomes. That makes them an important tool for managing health and safety at work.
