Title of Presentation
Safety Metrics - Are They Measuring Up?

Session Description
Measurement in safety is fairly standard, but rarely questioned. This presentation will look more closely at metrics. Why do we measure? What types of metrics are used? How can they influence behavior change? Are they useful? These and other questions interrogating metrics will be addressed, using differing lenses to see the power of metrics from different perspectives. Drawing from literature from a variety of industries, this presentation will highlight the concerns with traditional metrics, and suggest some innovative alternatives.

Learning Objectives
Recognize properties of traditional safety metrics.
Identify problems with traditional safety metrics.
List alternatives to traditional safety metrics.

Title of Presentation
Learning from Multiple Incidents in a Structured Manner Using Scenario-based Incident Registration

Session Description
Many high hazard industries use bowties to analyze and assess risks. In the bowtie risk analysis model, barriers are identified which aim to prevent, control or mitigate unwanted scenarios and that may have health and safety, as well as production and quality impacts.

However, despite best effort risks assessments, incidents and close calls may still occur. When they do, organizations typically conduct investigations to come up with recommendations to avoid similar situations in the future. Unfortunately, in many cases these investigation reports end up as a collection of largely unstructured documents. They are often treated as single events, making it difficult to clearly identify trends over multiple events.

Scenario-based Incident Registration (SIR) aims to provide a more structured process. A user selects a specific scenario from a set of bowties (from threat to consequence) and assesses the effectiveness of the barriers identified on the original bowtie. Specific questions are asked per barrier about the reasons of the failure. These findings are stored on a barrier level. If this process is repeated, then the bowtie will accumulate barrier failure data of multiple incidents in a single diagram. This information helps the organization to identify the strength of their barriers which in turn facilitates risk-based decision-making.

The Dutch National Institute for Health and Environment has used a similar process to map over 23,000 incidents on standardized bowties. The aggregated data gave them unique insight into which scenarios are most likely to lead to incidents and which barriers fail most commonly for which reasons. This has helped them to provide the overall Dutch industries with guidance on where to focus their efforts to improve health and safety performance.

Learning Objectives
Understand barrier based risk management and bowtie methodolog.
Recognize the benefit of structured incident registration using the bowtie method.
Learn from multiple incidents and how to improve barrier performance.
