Top 3 leading indicators to drive operational excellence and benchmark best practices

June 14, 12:00 p.m. Central Daylight Time
Are you using reactive events to drive a proactive culture?  All too often our performance is measured by lagging indicators – injuries, spills/releases, recalls, property damage, near misses – as we try to drive a proactive culture of safety first.  Learn from more than four years of research on the top performing energy companies to learn the best predictors of a true safety culture. 
Have you found the leading indicators that truly result in fewer injuries, less spills, and generally better EHS and Sustainability (EHS&S) performance?  If so, can you prove it?  If not, is it something you wish to do? Over the course of several years and thousands of data sets, IHS has developed leading indicator benchmarks for driving operational excellence and provides the mathematical support to back it up.
From this webinar, you will learn how to:
  • Predict safety performance in a way that is actionable and measureable so that it can be acted upon by leaders
  • Turn your risk management data into predictive analytics for operational excellence
  • Share industry best practices for benchmarking your own operational risk management program
