Abstract

Traditionally the construction industry in Australia has monitored its OHS performance using outcome indicators, such as the lost-time injury frequency rate. The limitations in relying solely on outcome indicators to measure OHS performance are widely known and moves towards developing alternative ways to measure OHS performance are being explored. This article outlines the process that was used to develop positive performance indicators (PPIs) for the construction industry. It is envisaged that the 22 PPIs developed could form the basis of a performance measurement framework at the enterprise level for this industry.
