Corporate Benchmarking Services was formed in 2001. It's conception followed a research exercise for one of the UK's largest energy utilities looking to make Occupational Health & Safety performance comparisons with companies of similar risk, size and spread. Their focus was their company's internal Health and Safety resource and their Safety performance.
This landmark benchmarking research project spawned an industry wide benchmarking programme called sheiiba - the Safety Health & Environment Intra Industry Benchmarking Association; a membership organisation for open thinking Safety professionals in industry-leading companies who understand the benefits of sharing their processes and performance with their peers, in so doing identifying better practices and saving themselves from reinventing the wheel.
From sheiiba grew both bespoke data-capture / reporting web sites for some of the UK's best known companies and for entire industry sectors like the Water UK Health & Safety Benchmarking Programme.
