Recordable Rates Fall, Fatalities Tick Up

According to the BLS, recordable rates in 2016 continued the trend of the last 14 years and ticked downward to 2.9, meanwhile, fatalities have remained virtually flat, with a slight uptick in 2016.  There has been a 20% reduction in recordables over the last 8 years, while fatality rates have not budged.    

What approaches are you taking in your facility to change this trend?  Are you still subscribing to the Heinrich Triangle model or do you see value in the SIF Potential (DEKRA) model?
