Why are analytics growing in importance in occupational health and safety management?

What gets measured gets managed. The key is to measure what matters. Analytics are a growing part of occupational health and safety — from using leading indicators to predict areas of likely future injury to evaluating the success of wellness programs to determining where poor employee health is likely to lead to injuries.

How, if at all, are you evolving the way you look at scorecards and analytics?

We continue to look at new areas where scorecards and analytics can lead to healthier, safer workplaces. Two particular areas of focus are the integration of health and safety data to indicate where workplace injuries might occur and using analytics to evaluate the health of the workforce. Healthy workers are more productive, more motivated and, if injured, tend to return to work sooner and in better shape.
