Geneva — A new guidebook from the International Labor Organization is intended to help employers compile data on key performance indicators related to safety and health.

The first of the guide’s three chapters details the five KPIs and ILO’s Safety + Health for All flagship program. The second chapter includes guidelines that apply to all five KPIs. The third chapter features more information on those KPIs, along with step-by-step instructions for data entry, collection and analysis. 

“By following the guidebook's instructions, project managers and data collectors/surveyors can collect data on the KPIs in a uniform way across all projects, sectors and countries,” ILO says. “This is important to ensure the quality and comparability of the data and the key performance indicators.”
