The indicator was developed for use by small and medium sized firms.
- Developed three versions of the indicator;
- Tested these versions with companies and stakeholders;
- Produced the question sets, calculation and dummy charts;
- Advised the developers on the production of the tool.
After two stages of piloting it was found that the hazard management version of the index is the better predictor of incident rates.
Business Link took our demonstration version of the tool and produced a version on its Business Link website.
- Helps you to understand how well you identify and manage health and safety hazards
- Provides you with targeted guidance to help you improve your management of health and safety
- Enables you to compare your performance anonymously with other businesses across sectors and sizes.
Our work is detailed in the HSE report which can be viewed here.
