Topic Performance Measurement
Abstract Cross-functional teams identified root causes of injuries and reduced accidents by 48 percent in one year while saving an estimated $714,000 in cost avoidance over a 24-month period.

A key tool used in developing an action plan was the solution selection matrix, a systematic approach that allows for the best possible solutions to surface.
