Measurement and Metrics

Identifying and using relevant process safety metrics over the life of a process is one of four elements in the RBPS pillar of learning from experience.  Read more about what is it?, why is it important?, where/when is it done?, who does it?, what is the anticipated work product? and how is it done?. Explore CCPS's common set of company and industry leading and lagging process safety metrics and use the Process Safety Metrics Online Reporting Application which allows companies to benchmark their performance. For more information on process safety performance indicators, including a comprehensive list of metrics for measuring performance and examples as to how they can be successfully applied over both the short and long term, read Guidelines for Process Safety Metrics.
