Safety Statistics

The Leading indicator vs. Exposure graph shows Olgoonik/Fairweather's key performance leading indicators (Job Safety Analysis, Tailgate meetings, Good Catch, hazardous condition, Behavioral Observations) from 2009-2013 versus the number of exposure hours that were incurred over the course of the season. Significant increases are obvious a 41% increase in toolbox meetings and JSA analysis from 2012-2013, 46% increase in hazard identification; BBS observations saw a 29% increase and an 85% in good catch identifications.

Chart Key

Below is an explanation of the key performance indicators on the chart. Olgoonik/Fairweather uses these KPI's to understand the effectiveness of their safety procedures and plan for the future.


Hazardous condition - Any physical condition attributable to physical and mechanical sources within the work environment which, if left uncorrected may lead to an accident.

Job Safety Analysis - A Job Safety Analysis (JSA) is a method that can be used to identify, analyze and record the steps involved in performing a specific job, identifying the existing or potential safety and health hazards associated with each step, and the recommended mitigations that will eliminate or reduce these hazards and the risk of a workplace injury or illness.

Behavioral Cross Audit - Behavior Based Safety focuses on what people do, analyzes why they do it, and then applies a research-supported intervention strategy to improve what people do

Toolbox meeting - Pre-shift safety meeting in which a daily safety topic is presented, daily work plan is discussed with crew members and the JSA(s) for the work to be completed are reviewed.

Good Catch - Pre-shift safety meeting in which a daily safety topic is presented, daily work plan is discussed with crew members and the JSA(s) for the work to be completed are reviewed.
