Measurement culture assesses the willingness of employees to provide data voluntarily and regularly as well as their commitment to record information correctly, with integrity, and in a timely manner. Measurement culture is impacted by employee participation, as well as management engagement, communication, and use of data for important outcomes. This session will highlight a new survey measurement tool and discuss the effect that measurement culture has on data collection and quality within behavior based safety programs.

Learning Outcomes: 

  1. Participants will learn about antecedents to measurement culture.
  2. Participants will learn about assessing measurement culture.
  3. Participants will learn about the effect of measurement culture on data collection and quality.
