In mid-August, the PESA Health and Safety Committee will launch the much-anticipated PESA Health & Safety Benchmarking Digital Platform. The application will use anonymized company data to identify baseline performance standards, illuminating strengths and weaknesses against industry peers.
Prior to the launch, PESA will host a webinar on Thursday, July 19, to provide an overview of the platform and answer questions.
About the Platform
Users will have access to information yet unavailable in other industry databases.
After inputting their data, users will be able to compare themselves to size and industry class peers on:
- Number of recordable cases due to illness, injury or fatality
- Number of days away from work due to illness or injury
- Number of cases and days away from work involving restricted work activity or job transfer
- Total Recordable Incident Rate (TRIR)
- Lost Time Injury Frequency Rate (LTIFR)
- Motor Vehicle Incident Rate (MVIR)
For maximum flexibility, reports will be printable and easily convertible into charts and graphs. The platform will also be usable on most iOS and Android mobile devices.
PESA understands the sensitive nature of an organization’s health and safety data. To ensure confidentiality, critical steps to keep company-specific data secure have been added. Users will only see their respective data; to anyone else, their data will be unidentifiable. Also, the platform’s software will be designed to function autonomously after launch, requiring minimal outside intervention to maintain high confidentiality standards.
The most critical determiner of the platform’s success will be member investment. The more members contribute their data early on, the more accurate and generalizable the reports will be. The first year’s payment will also ensure access through the end of 2019, providing excellent value for members who subscribe immediately. PESA members will pay $500 for the annual subscription, while non-members will pay $750.
PESA’s strategy with this project is to grow and develop over time with increased member users. With the support of our membership, this goal, and by extension, the platform’s increased usefulness, will be more quickly achieved.
