“Many people have wondered if workplace injuries really can be predicted and prevented,” says Griffin Schultz, General Manager of Predictive Solutions. “And the simple answer is yes, workplace injuries and safety incidents can be reduced by predicting them before they happen. When the results of the research outlined in this paper are applied to workplace safety, we are one step closer to the vision many of us share of sending every employee home safe, every day.”

According to Industrial Scientific, owner of Predictive Solutions Corporation, the white paper summarises pioneering research conducted by teams from Predictive Solutions and Carnegie Mellon University in the development of safety analytics and prediction models.

In particular, the white paper makes a case for why safety leading indicators, rather than lagging indicators, should be used as the drivers of workplace injury prevention programs.
