What Do We Mean by QHSE Performance Indicators?

Improve the efficiency of your QHSE performance indicators
A QHSE (Quality, Hygiene, Safety, Environment) performance indicator is a measurement tool used to assess the effectiveness of policies and procedures implemented in your company. These indicators are essential to help you monitor and improve your performance in each of your entities.

Your performance indicators are unique to your company, particularly depending on your industry. They are usually predefined in advance during the definition of your strategy and the objectives to be achieved.

How important are performance indicators?

Managing QHSE areas in your company can be complex as it requires a rigorous and methodical approach. Performance indicators play a crucial role by providing quantifiable and analyzable data. This allows you to:
1.Assess the effectiveness of current processes: indicators provide objective data to measure the performance of existing processes.

2. Identify areas for improvement: they highlight areas or actions that require special attention to be in a continuous improvement mindset.

3.Ensure regulatory compliance: effective monitoring of indicators helps you maintain compliance with evolving standards and regulations.

4.Improve safety and reduce risks: they help prevent accidents and incidents by identifying potential risks.

What types of indicators should be considered?

The main quality indicators:

Non-compliance rate: measures the percentage of products or services that do not meet established quality standards. These standards are generally defined by current norms or by your management to ensure a certain level of service. A low non-compliance rate indicates high-quality production.

Customer/Supplier return rate: this indicator is directly linked to customer satisfaction. It’s important to consider feedback to identify a potential recurring problem. This rate directly indicates the quality level of your product or service as perceived by your customers.

Response time to customer complaints: by monitoring this indicator, it’s possible to optimize processes and prioritize actions to reduce the time from complaint receipt to resolution. It is important to take the necessary time to respond to and resolve customer complaints, but a shorter response time with good responsiveness reflects the efficiency of your company’s customer service.

The main hygiene and safety indicators:

Frequency and severity of work accidents: these indicators measure the number of accidents per hours worked and their severity, taking into account potential consequences. They are essential to assess the effectiveness of your company’s safety policies.

Absenteeism rate: this rate is not necessarily for issuing sanctions but rather to evaluate the working conditions of your teams. A high rate may imply safety problems within your industry.

Safety audits: audits, in general, provide crucial information for identifying certain points. In this case, it allows you to know your compliance with safety standards and identify areas for improvement.

The main environmental indicators:

Water and energy consumption: these indicators allow you to have visibility on the efficiency of your processes in terms of natural resource consumption and measure your environmental impact.

Reduction of greenhouse gas emissions: these elements are essential for companies with a CSR approach. They are also useful if you want to obtain certain certificates to justify your actions in favor of the environment.

Recycling rate: measures the proportion of waste recycled, which can also be interesting if you have an environmental approach.
