Title: Safety analysis report: A comparison of incidents from Safety Years 2006 through 2010, USDA Forest Service, Rocky Mountain Research Station Inventory and Monitoring Program

Author: Donahue, Devon;

Date: 2012

Publication Series: Research Paper (RP)

Description: This paper is an analysis of 5 years of accident data for the USDA Forest Service, Rocky Mountain Research Station (RMRS) Inventory and Monitoring (IM) Program that identifies past trends, allows for standardized self-comparison, and increases our understanding of the true costs of injuries and accidents. Measuring safety is a difficult task. While most agree that measuring leading indicators (linked to preventative actions) is a better indication for future performance, measuring lagging indicators (accidents, past occurrences) has been the more commonly accepted approach.

Keywords: accident data, Rocky Mountain Research Station, safety, injuries, accidents, inventory and monitoring, trend, costs
