GSI was established to address a global need. There was no readily accessible live safety measurement and benchmarking tool that enabled organisations to determine how they were performing internally at a point in time and over-time, and then to be able to compare this performance externally to high-performance organisations. The traditional Lag measure of Lost Time and Total Recordable Injury frequency rates simply did not capture an accurate representation of how safe an organisation is.
GSI was the worlds first integrated measurement and benchmarking tool for critical safety inputs that drive performance proactively, being Safety Leadership, Safety Culture and Mental Health Literacy.
Over the years, we have continuously challenged the status quo and challenged organisations to shift their reporting metrics. Our drive to use data-driven insights to empower organisations across the world to improve safety keeps us continuously innovating our platform to ensure we remain the industry leaders in this space.
