A proposal to change the Office of Science injury reduction contractual performance measures

PDF Version Also Available for Download.

Description

All ten of the Office of Science (SC) national laboratories have made significant progress in transforming the safety culture of their organizations over the last five to 10 years. The gradual downward trend in injury rates at each of these laboratories is evidence of this transformation. The present practice of inserting uniform injury-reduction metrics into each SC laboratory's contract, despite our differences, and attempting to measure that performance with limited sampling data, however, does not result in accurate assessments of performance. This paper offers an alternative approach to performance measurement.
