Positive Performance Indicators (PPIs) are a great way to manage and evaluate your activities.
Positive performance indicators (PPIs) measure those actions that provide good Workplace health and safety (WHS) outcomes.
PPIs are a measurement of the success of good WHS practice.
PPIs are POSTIVE because they measure the POSITIVE steps your organisation is taking to PREVENT incidents.
For example PPIs can include:
• the number of workplace inspections that have been completed in a business
• corrective actions that have been put in place in a business to improve WHS, and
• the number of employees trained in WHS.
PPIs should be used in conjunction with standard WHS performance measures, such as the number and frequency of injuries.
You can use PPIs to measure if you, as a business operator, are carrying out agreed management control processes and if those processes are effective in reducing the number of fatalities, injuries and diseases in
