RR909 - Safety performance indicators in the explosives sector: Development of a worked example

The Health and Safety Laboratory (HSL) were originally approached by the Health and Safety Executive (HSE) to assist with the implementation of Safety Performance Indicators (SPIs) within the Explosives industry.

This work builds on the examples and indicators identified in previous work (Ferguson and Nash, 2008), and aimed to encapsulate the types of activities common to a large number of organisations. Previous work to generate Safety Performance Indicators (SPIs) had resulted in little consistency or commonality across the industry group in terms of the leading and lagging indicators developed. It was therefore considered that to engage the sector, a 'case study' or worked example should be developed.
