New Safety-Related Benchmarks Debut at NSC's Expo

Towers Perrin-ISR, the research division of global professional services firm Towers Perrin, will unveil highlights today of its four new safety-related benchmarks--including its new Process Safety Culture benchmark--in a presentation at the 95th annual National Safety Council Congress & Expo in Chicago.

Titled "Safe Work Environments: The Importance of Culture," the roundtable discussion will highlight results of three case studies, including a three-year study of a global petrochemical company, to illustrate the importance of understanding employee perspectives when developing safety action plans. The company featured in the case study is a top-five global energy producer with operations in 180 countries, and the study represents opinions of more than 35,000 of its employees. Additionally, Towers Perrin-ISR will reveal three other benchmarks: the 2007 Best-in-Class Process Safety Culture Benchmark, the Personal/Occupational Safety Culture Benchmark, and the High-Performing Personal/Occupational Safety Benchmark.

A company news release states that all of the high-performing safety benchmarks results collectively contain hundreds of thousands of employee safety perceptions from industry-leading companies and offer realistic, attainable levels of safety excellence for which safety culture-conscious firms can strive.

Moderator Paul Restivo, the director of the Center for Environmental Health at Southern Illinois University Carbondale, will moderate a panel discussion with Project Director Joseph Dettmann, Research Associate Justine O'Connor, and Research Development Director Amy Johnson.
