How Do You Measure Significant Injury and Fatality Improvement?

For TapRooT® Clients, significant injuries and fatalities are rare events. Therefore some of our clients have asked …

How do we measure improvement?

Standard trending just doesn’t seem to work because the statistic (fatalities and significant injuries) occur so rarely. (See a typical graph of infrequently occurring data below).

The answer is two types of specialized XmR Charts. The Interval Process Behavior Chart and the Rate Process Behavior Chart. And Example of a Rate Process Behavior Chart is shown below.

You can use these types of graphs to see if significant improvement or a significant decline in performance has occurred. You can also project the number of days without a SIF proves that you have improved.
