Leading Indicator Analysis: Create a Program to Capture Critical Security Data Points


Near misses and close-call incidents highlight the potential for accidents and safety risks—but all too often we ignore the learning lessons inherent in such warnings. Brushing these almost-emergencies under the rug is a mistake. Instead, mine these incidents—vital sources of data—as the important early-warning signs they are. And put that information to good, preventative security work.

During this webinar, you’ll learn how to design, develop, and maintain a Near-Miss/Close-Call reporting process that advances your organization’s safety & security goals. Experienced safety professional, John J. Meola will teach you to set up a reporting system, manage and analyze input, and transform information into actionable data for better accident prevention throughout your operations.

After attending this informative presentation, you will know how to harness the lessons of close call incidents and use the information to adjust and fine-tune your security policies. Plus, you’ll have realistic knowledge about what data points are critical—and the best questions to ask employees after a near miss—as you work toward a safer operations environment.
