  6. 6. Environmental Management 27/04/2015 6 Environmental KPI’s:  Incident frequencies – there is no such thing as a risk free environment however what we learn from such occurrences and how we shape policy to reduce the likelihood is essential.  Near miss frequencies - this is our barometer particularly if there are a significant number of similar near misses. • Can the process be eliminated and done more safely? • Check your risk assessment and method statements. • Talk to workers and supervisors. • Check training is current.
