How To Trend Your Accident Data

What methods do you use to trend your accident data?

Is a decrease in lost time injuries seen as a success?

Is in an increase in injuries a failure and time for drastic action?

Are you using bar graphs or a simple line graph to look for trends?

How much change in the stats is enough for you to tell management that significant change has occurred?

That’s what I learned about 20 years ago and have been perfecting ever since.

How can you learn them too?

First, you can read Chapter 5 of the TapRooT® Book.

Second, you can study advanced trending and learn to use XmR Charts to trend accident data (both frequently occurring data and infrequently occurring data).

Third, you can attend SI’s TapRooT® Advanced Trending Techniques Course. You can hold one on your site for your people or the public course we hold each year just before the TapRooT® Summit.

When is the next public course?

On August 1-2, 2016 in San Antonio, TX. That’s a long time but it is the first public course. Mark your calendar to save the dates.

What will you learn at the TapRooT® Advanced Trending Techniques Course?
