    Description

    This paper is an analysis of 5 years of accident data for the USDA Forest Service, Rocky Mountain Research Station (RMRS) Inventory and Monitoring (IM) Program that identifies past trends, allows for standardized self-comparison, and increases our understanding of the true costs of injuries and accidents. Measuring safety is a difficult task. While most agree that measuring leading indicators (linked to preventative actions) is a better indication for future performance, measuring lagging indicators (accidents, past occurrences) has been the more commonly accepted approach.
