  • The Use of Leading Indicators to Predict Safety Performance

    To find sources of leading safety indicators, we need to look at the base of the Heinrich Safety Pyramid. Leading safety indicators are derived from safety incidents that did not result in injury. These can include everything from job safety observations and attendance at safety meetings to unsafe acts and near misses. These are different than lagging indicators, which are statistics that result ...
