Safety Performance Measures

HP-014      Reviewed 08/12/2016

OTHR uses Safety Performance Measures and Reports to ensure that its SMS is effective.

Measurable Safety performance goals are set in the Annual Safety Report to ONRSR each year and performance is measured against these goals .  Key Performance Indicators (KPI) are used to measure safety performance, and assess whether safety performance objectives are being met.

Safety Performance information is communicated within the organisation via toolbox meetings, newsletters, the OTHR website, monthly general meetings and committee meetings. The information is also included in each annual safety performance report.

OTHR has established safety performance goals which are:

  • No injuries of any kind
  • No  ONRSR Notifiable incidents or occurrences
  • All ONRSR audit findings and directives actioned within required  time frames.

OTHR measures its performance against these goals and Key Performance Indicators (KPI) are used to measure safety performance, and assess whether safety performance objectives are being met.

OTHR follows the ONRSR guidelines using the following indicators:

 Lag (Outcome) Indicators:

  • ONRSR Notifiable occurrences per kilometre traveled
    This includes travel by our track maintenance vehicles
  • Number of  injuries or incidents where days or time was lost
  • Severity of Injury per Number of All Injuries registered
    This Indicator shows the relative percentage of First Aid, Medical Treatment and Lost Time injuries as a percentage of the total number of injuries registered.
  • Number of Drug and Alcohol Incidents
    Shown as also as an index per total hours worked.

Lead (Positive) Indicators:

  • The number of corrective actions resulting from safety reviews and audits which have not been implemented within agreed time frames
    Expressed as a percentage of all corrective actions from internal audits and reviews
  • The number of non-conformance identified in ITSR audits which have not been closed out within agreed time frames (and expressed as a percentage of all ITSR audit findings)
  • Number of safety briefings (toolbox meetings) conducted per days worked.

Safety Performance information is communicated within the organisation via toolbox meetings, monthly general meetings and committee meetings. The information is also included in each annual safety performance report, and used as input into the SMS Review.
