SSI provides an innovative method to diagnose and identify deficiencies in occupational safety systems. These may be acted on to improve safety performance. Mechanical social safety metrics are capable of establishing baseline knowledge of safety climate and culture comparatively. SSI can also provide progressive analysis as systems grow.
The fast survey method can identify and compare many population classes quickly. It compares class divisions such as managers, trades, or labor groups. It defines social safety climate (Existential safety), and corporate legal safety culture (Essential safety).
