Safety Barometer Express

New! Safety Barometer Express

In order to move forward, you must know the answer to the first question on the Journey to Safety Excellence: where are you now and where do you want to be? And you must be able to measure these results to track and report your progress. The newest product from the National Safety Council will empower you to move strategically forward on this journey.

Designed especially for smaller organizations, the National Safety Council created NSC Safety Barometer Express. It is an easy-to-implement, 50-question employee perception survey that will give you a snapshot of how your organization is operating today so you know where improvements need to be made for tomorrow. It is a “click & go” online survey for companies with 100 employees or less that need a standardized and comprehensive safety measure.

Safety Barometer Express enables you to: 

  • Capture the overall health of your safety management system on an easy to understand scale
  • Signal overall problem areas in need of further study or immediate corrective action
  • Automatically generate a prioritized safety improvement action plan
  • Compare responses of employees to averages in National Safety Council Database giving benchmark percentile scores
  • Provide a numeric baseline for reassessment in the future
  • Provide your management with sensitive and valid leading indicator safety metrics
  • Effectively incorporate safety measures into your continuous improvement process
  • Increase employee engagement and morale
  • Motivate your organization to find gaps and make changes


Statistical results of all NSC surveys, including Safety Barometer Express, focus on benchmarking your company’s responses to a proprietary database of over 500 establishments, representing over a million employees across the world. Percentile scores on a scale of 0 to 100 are calculated for each of the 50 survey items based on how your organization’s average response compares to all other survey users. A score of 100 indicates the top score in the database; a score of 0 indicates the lowest; a score of 50 indicates that half the scores are above and half are below your company’s score. Scores for each component are sorted from highest to lowest, generating a prioritized list for action planning.
