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.

Kirkpatrick Partners is a provider of training evaluation and business partnership training, products, consulting and impact studies. Our work is based on the Kirkpatrick Evaluation Model created by Donald L. Kirkpatrick in 1954 as part of his PhD dissertation on the evaluation of the effectiveness of training for supervisors. It is expanded by the Kirkpatrick Business Partnership Model and Kirkpatrick Foundational Principles.

Instead of training ROI, we focus on training return on expectations (ROE). This is a more holistic measurement of all of the benefits realized from a program or initiative, both qualitative and quantitative. We offer courses and workshops on training evaluation and business partnership that equip training professionals to create, demonstrate and measure the business results and value their training yields or supports.

Don's son James (Jim) and daughter-in-law Wendy are pleased to carry on his legacy through Kirkpatrick Partners. Whether you want to earn your Kirkpatrick certification or simply create more value in your organization, we are here to help. Our programs are valuable whether you are a corporate employee, member of government or an independent consultant.

The Kirkpatricks are the authors of nine books, including Evaluating Training Programs, Implementing the Four Levels, Transferring Learning to Results, Kirkpatrick Then and Now, Training on Trial, and The Brunei Window Washer: Bringing Business Partnership to Life.
