Metrics and Performance

We measure our safety performance using a range of leading and lagging indicators. Leading indicators include metrics for training hours, leadership commitment, employee involvement and the quality of incident investigations. Lagging indicators include incidents, near misses and days away from work. Leading indicators help drive continuous improvement in our safety performance, while lagging indicators help us assess the success of our safety management efforts. Some of our key performance metrics for 2017 include the following:


improvement in ONE Team Total Recordable Injury Rate, compared to 2016

ONE Team employee and contractor functional forums attended by SWN leadership
