Read this white paper to understand how to use the Safety Maturity Index.
The Safety Maturity Index (SMI) gives manufacturers visibility into their safety programs and the ability to optimize them. It can help an organization measure and evaluate its safety program against the three key pillars — culture, compliance, and capital — on a scale of 1 to 4. For SMI 4 level manufacturers, safety is considered vital to the health of the business and its employees. Compliance processes are clearly deﬁned, and even suppliers must live up to required safety standards. The company conducts thorough risk assessments, follows the Functional “safety life cycle,” and uses advanced safety technologies to improve worker safety and OEE. Read this white paper to understand how to use the SMI. The beneﬁts of optimizing safety extend far beyond fewer injuries or ﬁnes. Companies that approach safety holistically across culture, compliance, and capital can improve productivity, gain eﬃciencies, and experience improved employee morale, while also protecting their brand reputations.
