Injury/illness rate is a common safety performance metric. Worldwide, we track "lost time incident rate", or the number of workplace injuries and illnesses that result in days away from work per 100 employees.
Although we strive for zero workplace incidents, our occupational injury rate tracks between 0.2 and 0.3. This means that on an annual basis, 2-3 employees per 1000 employees has an injury that results in lost time from work. Each injury is investigated, and actions are taken to prevent the injury from recurring. Typical injuries include motor vehicle accidents, sprains, strains, slips, trips, and falls.
This good performance is comparable to other similar businesses in the industry sector.
