Developing leading indicators of work injury and illness

Leading indicators of work injury and illness are characteristics of workplaces that precede occupational health and safety (OHS) outcomes and, if changed, are expected to lead to changes in these outcomes. As a result, leading indicators have the potential to help identify factors affecting the risk of injury, allowing workplaces to address these factors before injuries occur. This Issue Briefing looks at efforts to date to identify OHS leading indicators, the challenges involved, and the work being done at the Institute for Work & Health to identify the best and most usable set of management and organizational measures predictive of work injuries and illnesses.
