Why Zero Injuries Does NOT Always Mean Your Worksite is Safe

If Your Facility Hasn’t Injured Someone in a While, You May NOT Be Doing Your Job!

Be amongst the first to hear Dr. Boyce’s NEW provocative, enlightening, and practical keynote address.   Developed in response to his article of the same title just published in Mining Quarterly (click here), the talk description supplied to CBS by Dr. Boyce reads as follows:

“Zero injuries isn’t always what it’s cracked up to be.  In fact, “zero” can lull a facility in to a sense of complacency regarding the basic necessities of injury prevention.  During this edgy, yet entertaining and informative talk, Dr. Boyce will describe the downside of using traditional measures of safety such as injury-rate to evaluate safety success and also the perils of rewarding the absence of injuries as a measure of good performance. He will also introduce an alternative approach that can be immediately implemented to test the true status of your safety culture.  With this simple change, any facility (including yours) can take a huge step toward true prevention.  As a result, “zero” becomes a meaningful reality, not just a poster on the wall.”
