    About the Journey to Safety Excellence

    The Journey to Safety Excellence is a collection of safety and health best practices based on standards (such as ANSI Z10, OHSAS 18001, and the upcoming ISO 45001), research and practices of companies with world-class safety performance. Through our 100-plus years of work with thousands of employers, we developed a framework of best practices that, if followed, lead to optimal safety outcomes.

    The Four Pillars of the Journey

    Leadership and employee engagement: Leaders foster a culture where safety is fully integrated in the business and is a core value where all workers are engaged and share responsibility.

    Safety management systems: A strong safety management system is a framework of processes and procedures to ensure that work tasks are completed to safely achieve objectives.


    Risk reduction: Risk is the combination of the probability of an event and the severity of the injury that may result. Risk is always present in the workplace and those organizations who actively strive to reduce it will outperform those who do not.
    Performance measurement: To manage improvement, it is essential to have measurable goals to track performance, looking at leading and lagging indicators and how they are related.
