Overall, all 8 KPIs have shown improvement in 2016. For example, the timely reporting of incidents KPI has climbed from 67% to 82%. Toolbox participation is up 10%. Inspections have increased to 96%. Senior management attendance of safety meetings regarding accidents or near misses is also at 96%, with the target set at 100%.
And one KPI – the end of work report – has already achieved 100%, showing how it is now firmly anchored in the business. In 2017, this has therefore been replaced by an Incident Investigation KPI, to ensure any accidents are properly investigated and reported.
Crucially, these KPIs show that DEME is achieving the vital engagement/buy-in to its safety culture. For example, the employee safety observations and suggestions KPI has increased from 80% in 2015 to an impressive 97% a year later. This means that nearly each employee – representing more than 4,000 people – has made at least three safety observations.
