Stop relying on LTIs

A new report suggests that lost time injuries (LTI) should no longer be the focus of measuring work health and safety performance.

Issues in the Measurement and Reporting of Work Health and Safety Performance: A Review isn’t suggesting that injury indicators be discarded altogether. Rather, it advocates using a range of measures including injury and illness outcomes and positive performance indicators.

“Disregarding one or the other would [be] akin to asking investors to choose between receiving a Balance Sheet and an Income Statement: both are important because they provide different perspectives on an organisation’s success – one reflects position and the other reflects performance,” the report says.

The report recommends a shift away from LTIs to Class 1 work-related illness and injury (WRII) outcomes, total recordable injury frequency rates (TRIFR), valid positive performance indicators and the innovation of new approaches to measuring performance.
