BCFSC SIFp Campaign

SIFp (Significant Incident and Failure potential)

What is SIFp?

The purpose of the SIFp is to draw attention to significant events that may be overlooked and excluded by the Medical Incident Rate (MIR) or Recordable Rate benchmarking statistics traditionally used to measure safety performance. Declaring an event an “SIFp” is intended to red flag that event with the purpose of prompting companies to learn what categorical higher risk persists at each worksite, and focus attention to it. This is done by ensuring that not only a comprehensive investigation is completed along with its associated preventative actions, but that each of those SIFp events are pooled and collectively analyzed by the industry for trends and fundamental safety program change opportunities.

BCFSC worked with our Manufacturing Advisory Group to develop the resources found here to create aligned terminology and reporting for SIFp events so that companies can:
  • Increase or implement SIFp reporting within their sites, and
  • Analyze trends from SIFp reporting to direct where safety resources and attention should be focused
Companies are encouraged to share and promote the following resources within their worksites to promote the implementation of SIFp reporting, investigating and sharing lessons learned.
