The Zero Index - A Path to Sustainable Safety Excellence

Colin Duncan, General Editor

In today's organization, the old safety paradigms are no longer enough. Previous safety performance gains have leveled off and leaders are now tasked with navigating issues that their predecessors never anticipated: Stalling or increasing rates of high-severity injuries, greater technical complexity, increased legal accountability, and a looming shortage of qualified safety expertise, just to name a few. So where do we go from here? Global safety leader BST shares a new framework for creating comprehensive safety excellence: The Zero Index. Outlining 10 critical disciplines practiced by the world's safest organizations, the Zero Index provides a road map for safety as strategy and practical steps for getting from where you are now to the state where safety is "Who we are."
