Selecting which metrics to evaluate for your organization can be challenging. As seen in recent polls conducted by NAEM, companies are searching for metrics that tell a story of overall EHS performance.
It is not a perfect science; however, there are some key metrics that can get you started and long term metrics to work towards. Once metrics are collected, you can use the information to give clear visibility of overall performance and benchmark against peers and best practices.
Attend this webinar to get answers these questions:

- What are other companies doing – what is working well for them that I can learn from?
