||An indicator can be considered any quantitative or qualitative measure that seeks to produce information on an issue of interest. Safety indicators can play a key role in providing information on organizational performance, motivating people to work on safety and increasing organizational potential for safety. This article discusses the challenges of monitoring and driving system safety. It presents a theoretical framework for utilising safety performance indicators in safety-critical organizations that incorporate outcome, monitor and drive indicators. Examples are provided for each type of indicator and the application of the framework in organizational safety management is discussed.
