Danny Rubin, a bronze level certified member of the Kirkpatrick community, has been working diligently to find good measures of the return on expectations (ROE) of safety. He is looking for ways to measure what is saved when an accident is avoided.

Danny has recognized that, "Like NFL referees, safety training only seems to be noticed when it is absent (i.e., when an incident occurs). Training is part of the reaction, but I have not seen any way to measure its proactive contribution to incident prevention. Does anyone have a statistic or measurement that estimates how many incidents are prevented by proper advanced training? Would anyone like to work on a Level 4 ROE measurement that can demonstrate this value?"

We invite you to share your ideas with Danny and the rest of the Kirkpatrick Evaluation discussion group on LinkedIn.
