Table 2 provides descriptive statistics of the Total Recordable Incident Rate (TRIR), Lost Time Incident Rate (LTIR), and training hours.
Sarah Sanders Smith, Purdue University North Central Table 1:1 Description of Variables Dependent variables TRIR Total Recordable Incident Rate LTIR Lost Time Incident Rate Independent variables SAFEAUDIT Number of safety audits conducted in a year 1 = 0 2 = 1-5 3 = 6-10 4 = 11-15 5 = 16-20 6 = 21 or more TRNGHRS Number of training hours provided by the company SAFDISP1 The first, second and third disciplinary SAFDISP2 action companies took against an employee when SAFDISP3 they committed a safety infraction.
