Hello all:

Talking about Safety Management Systems frameworks, one of which is the OHSAS framework, does anybody did use, applied, tried or test statistics sampling methods to control and monitoring safety good practices in workplace?, for example controlling the use of Personal protective equipment (PPE) in risk environments?.

I’m trying to apply experimentally a specific statistics tool, used in work design and work measure issues, called Work Sampling. Any comments, questions or concerns are welcome and will contribute to this try out.

Thanks.

One of our Cove members, Steve Prevette, is an absolute maven at devising and maintaining statistical systems to monitor safety issues. He "made his bones" at the Hanford plant in Washington and now he is doing the same thing at the Savannah River plant in South Carolina. Google him - he probably has some pertinent stuff on the web.

:topic:
Steve is also a staunch Demingite (as am I) and most of his commentary attached to statistical analysis is slanted for readability and understanding in plain language by folks who are NOT statistics experts.

A big thing to look for in Steve's commentary is how he makes the statistical analysis acceptable to people who are resistant to "numbers stuff."

Thanks, Wes.

Yes, I've been working since 1996 on safety indicators using SPC and Pareto charts. Everything from analyzing the injuries themselves, to behavior based safety observations, to housekeeping inspections, corrective action management, and employee safety perceptions.
