Days Away, Restriction or Transfer (DART) Injuries 

Why this measure is important:

  • This measure helps Cincinnati Children’s track how many employees sustain injuries or illnesses that require them to miss work, perform restricted job duties or transfer to another job.
  • Measuring DART allows us to measure against other hospitals through The Bureau of Labor Statistics public reporting of industry DART rates.
  • Healthy and capable employees are critical to achieve our strategic goals.
  • We use this injury data to identify and implement interventions and best practices that result in the reduction of harm to our employees.

How we measure:  The rate is calculated from injuries resulting in days away, restriction/transfer recorded on the OSHA 300 Log.

What we are doing to improve:

  • Implementing  many safety initiatives for employee including online learning and education and fall prevention programs
  • Improving injury management systems and procedures
  • Occupational Safety & Environmental Health Staff collaborates with other departments, groups and managers to ensure that safety remains an area of focus.
