OHS Vulnerability Measure This tool assesses the extent to which a worker may be vulnerable to occupational health and safety (OHS) risks at work in four areas: hazard exposure; workplace policies and procedures; worker awareness of hazards and OHS rights and responsibilities; and worker empowerment to participate in injury and illness prevention

OHS Management Audits Differ In What They Assess And How
The nature and delivery of occupational health and safety (OHS) audits vary greatly. As a result, employers should determine why they are auditing and what they hope to find out when choosing an audit that best suits their needs.

OHS risks in social service organizations Despite the personal rewards of working in non-profit social service organizations, such jobs can also be demanding. Workers may face long hours, low pay and the risk of exposure to violence and infectious diseases. Yet these settings are often overlooked as being workplaces with health and safety risks. This study explores working conditions and work-related risks in three social service organizations. It focuses on the organization’s “mission” – its purpose and value of helping marginalized clients – as a concept that affects workers’ willingness to take and accept workplace risks...

Health & Safety Smart Planner: Economic evaluation software This software tool is designed for workplace OHS professionals and consultants to help them calculate the costs and benefits of workplace health and safety initiatives, as well as the costs of health and safety incidents. Economics training is not needed to use this tool because economic principles have been built into it.

IWH in the media: Can data help prevent workplace injuries and death?
Can big data—and its less complex sibling, routine data—help prevent injuries and death? Yes, say Institute for Work & Health (IWH)'s Dr. Chris McLeod and Dr. Cameron Mustard in a January 28, 2018, article in the Journal of Commerce. Routine data has been put to productive use in Ontario, where the Ministry of Labour learned that falls from heights (more than three metres) were the biggest cause of traumatic death in the construction industry, says Mustard, president of IWH.

Video Short Study by IWH scientist explores the link between COR certification and injury rates
The Certification of Recognition (COR) program recognizes and rewards employers that have robust occupational health and safety (OHS) and return-to-work policies. But do these employers actually have lower injury rates? That was the key question behind a study led by Dr. Chris McLeod of the Institute for Work & Health (IWH) and the University of British Columbia’s Partnership for Work, Health and Safety. The findings, reported on in the Spring 2016 issue of At Work, are also summed up in a new video card. Check it out and please share!

Using lagging and leading indicators for the evaluation of occupational safety and health performance in industry Int J Occup Saf Ergon. 2015 Jul 3; 21(3): 284–290.Published online 2015
Improvement of occupational safety and health (OSH) management is closely related to the development of OSH performance measurement, which should include OSH outcomes (e.g., occupational accidents), OSH inputs (including working conditions) and OSH-related activities. The indicators used to measure the OSH outcomes are often called lagging indicators, and the indicators of inputs and OSH activities are leading indicators. A study was conducted in 60 companies in order to determine what kinds of indicators were used for OSH performance measurement by companies with different levels of OSH performance. The results reveal that the indicators most commonly used in all of the companies are those related to ensuring compliance with the statutory requirements. At the same time, the leading indicators are much more often adopted in companies with a higher performance level. These companies also much more often monitor on a regular basis the indicators adopted for the evaluation of their OSH performance.

Measure health and safety performance
Too often, the only measures used in workplaces and by government authorities are 'negative' measures. These are known as outcome indicators, and while they are important, they generally reflect the results of past actions. Outcome indicators may hide potential risks. For example, having a low incidence of injury does not necessarily mean that adequate safety systems and controls are in place.

Evaluating OHS Performance The Need for Relevant and Reliable Data DEPARTMENTS
One of the primary reasons for establishing a management system is to improve organizational performance. A frequently asked question within organizations that have implemented a management system is “Has our performance improved?” If performance has improved, the management system is perceived a success. If performance has not improved, the management system is judged a failure.
