The Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) requires that companies meeting certain requirements such as size or industrial classification calculate their recordable and lost time injury rates
(a lost time event is an injury that requires an employee to take some medical leave from their job) on a yearly basis.
The mining sector recorded a lost time injury rate
of 1.3 per 200,000 hours worked.
In this sense, during third quarter of 2017, the Company continues to improve indicators with a Lost Time Injury Rate
(LTIR) of 5.1, well below those of the Construction Sector (41.8), Industry (31.6) or Industrial Assembly (10.1), which represents significant progress towards Abengoas Zero Accident target.
The Company continues to improve its Health and Safety indicators such as the Lost Time Injury Rate
(LTIR) that currently stands at 6.3, well below those of the Construction Sector (39.3), Industry (30.4) or Industrial Assembly (11.9), which represents significant progress towards Abengoas Zero Accident target.
Inclusion in the index is determined using 12 quantitative sustainability indicators, including the amount of revenue companies generate per unit of energy consumption, the ratio of CEO to average worker salary and lost time injury rate
In 2011, the Dubai yard had achieved 0.55 lost time injury rate
per million man-hours worked.
This means an increase in the number of safety audits, training hours, and safety infraction disciplinary actions reduces the total recordable incident rates and lost time injury rates, and vice versa.
Furthermore, the significant test (t-test) for both industrial safety models in Table 5 indicated that the number of safety audits was significant (a < 0.05) for the natural log of total recordable incident rates (LNTRIR) and on lost time injury rates (LNLTIR), all with expected negative signs.
