Sept. 29, 2013 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- The Campbell Institute – the
National Safety Council center of excellence for environmental, health and safety management – has launched a new white paper entitled
Transforming EHS Performance Measurement through Leading Indicators at the 2013 NSC Congress & Expo.
new paper provides a definition of leading indicators, developed by a panel of EHS experts, and describes eight critical characteristics of successful leading indicators. It also suggests multiple ways in which leading indicators can be categorized and identifies several key enablers of successful leading indicator implementation and use, including:
Executive buy-in on (not technical knowledge of) leading indicators
Roll-up and use of leading indicators at the corporate level
Communication and understanding of the predictive value of leading indicators by EHS and corporate leadership
Targeted leading indicator data collection used to analyze specific measurable actions rather than collected prior to development of response actions
The paper also identifies several common barriers to successful leading indicator implementation and use, including:
Inability to develop consistently actionable leading indicators
Lack of reliable, consistent relationship between leading and lagging indicator performance
Sporadic, infrequent and non-standardized benchmarking
Continuing C-suite reliance on traditional lagging indicators
"In its inaugural year, the Campbell Institute has made great strides as a transformative force in EHS," said
Mike Gambrell, Chairman of the Campbell Institute. "Releasing new research, such as this white paper on leading indicators, and engaging many volunteers, the Institute is sharing best practices and lessons from world class safety performers to impact EHS performance worldwide."
