    Do you have a lot of data, but don’t know what to do with it? Do you want to use your incident/injury data or WCB data to help your OHS strategy? Are the leaders in your organization asking for the numbers’?
     
    Does data give you the heebie jeebies?
     
    This 3hr workshop will get you going. It will show you how to use what you have, or get what you need, to get going down the road of data-driven decision making and evidence-based practice.

    • Recognize our historic need to capture data, and how it can help us move forward,
    • Be introduced to the Lifecycle of Data and the Data Pyramid,
    • Understand the basic components of OHS data, and what each element can do for us,
    • Be able to review your data understand its qualities, how to clean it up if needed, and what you can and can’t do with it,
    • Identify 2 to 4 key data elements that you can begin using to measure and prioritize your OHS program,
    • Learn how to use Microsoft Excel to create meaningful graphs, charts and tables to visually show where your OHS priorities are,
    • Practice how to communicate these findings to your business leaders.

     
    You will walk away with skills that you can use immediately in your workplace.
    This workshop also includes an additional 1-hr post-workshop one-on-one consultation with Waqar Mughal to help you apply these skills to your own organization’s data and situation.

    Research consistently shows that failure rates of change initiatives have been reported as high as 70-80%. The failure of many change initiatives to deliver what they promise is serious, but not inevitable. There is a strong and growing body of evidence that demonstrates the value of well-established change management practices in improving the success rate. This course is dedicated to sharing the kinds of insights and practices that lead to these improvements in success rates.

    Improving success rates requires planning –

    “Planning is bringing the future into the present so that you can do something about it now.” ― Alan Lakein, author.
