Your Safety Record Helps You Win (or Lose) Business Companies with a great safety record are companies that win business. The reverse is also true: companies with a poor safety record are not only at risk of losing profitable contracts in the bidding process, but also of losing existing business to competitors with a better safety record. Safety is considered an indication of an organization’s efficiency. If your safety record is poor, it’s often indicative of other systemic problems, making that company a less attractive partner for doing business. TRIR: The Most Important Safety Metric Total Recordable Incident Rate (TRIR) is a commonly used safety metric that measures the effectiveness of a company’s safety measures. Your TRIR is an indication as to whether or not employees are being injured in the workplace. According to the U.S. Department of Labor, TRIR can help determine both problem areas and progress in preventing workplace injuries. This is the key performance indicator companies use to track progress toward a zero injury goal. TRIR and Your Bottom Line
