I believe training hours could be considered one piece to help to see the "larger" story, yet would steer away from using only the "hours" .

I added in the Trainee’s attentiveness, level of engagement during the training session, and then after doing worker observation to review if there was application of the knowledge gained from training sessions (during walk-about and Toolbox Talks) to help build out a set of metrics that provides more robust insights to the impact (or lack of) the training program is having on individuals/teams safety performance and engagement.

No, leading indicators for safety are near misses, unsafe acts and unsafe conditions that may result in a accident. Training hours should not lead to the possibility of an accident

@markdahlke can an EHSQ management system also help track our leading indicators?

I would say yes since it stands to reason that with more training, there should be better knowledge and skills within the work system. Saying that, I would say it's too soft as a stand alone leading metrics and you need to understand more than simply the number of hours completed. In my opinion, it's one thing to understand quantity of training, but you may want to consider adding a set of metrics that shows training system robustness.
