CHASNZ Lag Metrics
Lag or results-based indicators are used to track the negative outcomes of health and safety performance over time and/or between industries, organisations, sites and functions. In order to be able to maximise the value of lag indicator recording it is essential to agree a common measurement framework. The CHASNZ document proposes a standard approach to the measurement of lag indicators across the construction industry in New Zealand. Organisations who adopt this approach can have increased confidence that they are looking at comparable data, which has been gathered and calculated in the same way. They can use this data to examine the number of times they have had a failure which has led to harm – and they will be able to compare their data to others, to understand whether they have harmed more or less people than others in the same sector. We encourage you to complete the Feedback Form and return to info@chasnz.org.nz by 12th April 2019.
