Safety + Health for All publishes guidebook for measuring performance of its interventions on key impact indicators

The new publication helps project managers and data collectors compile key performance indicators (KPI) on occupational safety and health for assessing projects implemented under the flagship programme.

News | 16 December 2022
The ILO has developed a guide on measuring the impact of projects implemented by the Safety + Health for All flagship programme, which aims to improve the safety and health of workers worldwide. The guidebook provides instructions to project managers and data collectors on how to compile data on occupational safety and health (OSH) for the key performance indicators (KPIs) identified to assess the programme interventions.

These indicators focus on the knowledge and attitudes of the target groups, individual behavioural change within these groups, and changing organisational practices.

The publication Collecting data and measuring key performance indicators on occupational safety and health interventions: A guidebook for implementers is available in English and will soon be released in French and Spanish.

The guidebook sets out general guidelines for all assessment steps – from planning to data collection, entry, cleaning and analysis. In addition, it offers specific guidance concerning each of the five KPIs devised to track the projects’ results. The data collection tools for measuring performance on the KPIs are also provided within the guidebook.

The aim is to provide project managers with clear instructions that allow uniform KPI data collection across all projects, sectors and implementing countries. This consistency is essential to ensure the quality and comparability of the data on key performance indicators within the flagship programme.

The ILO implements a number of projects under the programme around the globe. Safety + Health for All targets hazardous sectors, small and medium-sized enterprises, workers with high vulnerability to occupational injuries and diseases, and global supply chains through the Vision Zero Fund (VZF) initiative.
