  • Culture is the measurement of behavioral aspects of a company, including values, priorities, attitudes, incentives, and beliefs.
  • Compliance is the measurement of procedural aspects of a company, and includes environmental, health, and safety (EHS) and engineering policies and procedures, indicating whether the company has implemented policies and procedures that ensure compliance with appropriate standards and safety procedures.
  • Capital is the measurement of technical aspects of a company. Adoption of current machinery standards and contemporary technologies is shown to improve safety and productivity.
