  • The system of rules applied in recording and reporting accident statistics complies with the International Labour Organization (ILO) Code of Practice on Recording and Notification of Occupational Accidents and Diseases. Each year's safety data cover the incidents that happened in that calendar year and are based on the latest information available at the time of publication.
  • A fatality is the death of an employee or contractor personnel as a result of an occupational illness/ injury/ disease incident in the course of employment.
  • All rates are normalised to 200,000 worked hours, which approximately equals to the number of hours worked by 100 people in one year.
  • An occupational illness/ injury/ disease sustained by an employee or contractor personnel causing him/ her to miss one scheduled workday/ shift or more after the day of the injury (including fatalities). A lost time injury does not include the day the injury incident occurred or any days that the injured person was not scheduled to work and it does not include restricted work injuries.
  • Total recordable injuries count all occupational injury incidents and illness other than first aid cases. They include fatalities, lost time injuries, restricted work injuries, and medical treatment.
  • It refers to the number of working days lost when workers are unable to perform their usual work because of an occupational accident or disease. A return to limited duty or alternative work for the same organisation does not count as lost days.

  • The percentages given refer to full-time permanent staff within each location, who are eligible to retire within the next five years.
