ICMM has released a report providing an overview on leading indicators and how they can be applied for occupational health and safety in the mining industry.
Lagging indicators, which include fatality rates, incident statistics and health problems, have traditionally informed mining risk-management to measure its successes and failures. Leading indicators, however, can be created to produce forward-looking analysis in order to implement effective proactive control measures.
The report offers:
- a framework for developing leading indicatorsa
- common definition of leading indicators and their limitations
-guidance on how leading indicators can be used and implemented
- case studies on how companies have been using them
Global labour markets are undergoing massive change, driven in large part by advances in technology. Increasing automation and the rise of the so-called gig economy are displacing existing jobs while creating new jobs that demand different skills, and changing the trajectory of our working lives. The scope and scale of these shifts are unprecedented and will deeply affect the lives of working Canadians. We estimate that by 2030, automation and changes in existing occupations could threaten the jobs of more than 10 percent of Canadian workers unless they acquire new skills. This document discusses the challenges and proposes a pathway to address this.
