Quality, Health, Safety & Environment
During FY17, our safety performance was measured against the WA Worksafe Mining Services (Other) and WA Chemical Manufacturing safety benchmarks.
Our internal target was a 5% reduction on our FY16 total reportable injury frequency rate (TRIFR) of 4.11 injuries per million hours worked. Unfortunately we did not meet this target; however, our safety results remain better than the industry benchmarks. As set out in the graph below, our TRIFR for the year was 6.4 and our lost time injury frequency rate (LTIFR) was 3.2.
Throughout the year all of our locations were working towards a 4 Star QHSE rating, which recognises an advanced QHSE culture. It is pleasing to report the majority of our global locations have now achieved this rating. Other initiatives included: promoting the importance of incident and injury reporting globally; best practice injury management; and utilising our Quality Alert System to support continuous improvement.
TOTAL REPORTABLE INJURY FREQUENCY RATE (TRIFR) & LOST TIME INJURY FREQUENCY RATE (LTIFR)
- TRIFR = Number of total recordable injuries / diseases for each one million hours worked.
- LTIFR = Number of lost time injuries / diseases for each one million hours worked
