The IOGP-Ipieca Health Committee has established health performance indicators (HPIs) to measure the maturity and coverage of key elements of health management systems, and has been producing an annual report based on these leading HPIs since 2011.
The 2007 guidance on the application of the HPIs, has now been updated to:
- Better reflect the increasing recognition of the importance of mental health in the workplace
- Respond to rising numbers of emerging infectious illnesses
- Continue to help improve future health performance through preventive actions
- Include fatigue and well-being
- Separate fitness for task and health surveillance into two elements
In addition, to effectively support the use of the updated HPIs, the scoring options have been expanded to allow companies to more easily demonstrate ongoing, incremental improvements.
Companies can use the system internally to assess their health management system performance against industry best practice. The annual data reports will continue to provide a valuable opportunity for companies to benchmark against their industry peers.
The collective outcomes will also be used to further identify and inform proactive and preventative areas of work for the IOGP-Ipieca Health Committee to promote continual industry improvement.
