Total injury frequency for employees and contractors
One of the ways we measure safety performance is by the total recordable incident rate. This measure includes incidents that require medical treatment. Our 2012 total recordable incident rate was up 42 percent from 2011. Recordable injuries increased from 90 in 2011 to 156 in 2012. Of our total for last year, 151 incidents involved contractor companies working for us. We’ve had no fatalities at any of our operations since 2007. The increase in recordable health and safety injuries in 2012 was primarily associated with our contract workforce.
