Workplace Safety Performance
Serious Illness, Injury and Lost Workday Case RatesAlthough we continue to have the lowest incidence of lost workday cases among industry peers, our performance at the end of 2009 continued to trend above our target. Reductions in injuries from vehicle accidents, slips, trips and falls, and other causes were offset by a two-fold increase in ergonomic injuries.
Ergonomic injuries accounted for 29 percent of lost workday cases in 2010, down slightly from 32 percent in 2009, but still up from 20 percent in 2008. We have implemented a comprehensive plan that is improving the risk prevention competency of the health and safety professionals who manage this issue, focusing on the sites with the highest injury rates.
Fines and Safety Non-CompliancesIn 2010, we experienced 3 health and safety non-compliances, all of them minor in nature.
Fleet SafetyFor many of our employees, the Company vehicle is their workplace. Some spend up to 60 percent of their time driving on company business.
Our global SAFE Fleet program, which educates and trains employees about safe driving techniques and injury prevention strategies, has led to significant reductions in fleet crashes and injury rates. Since SAFE Fleet was first introduced in 1994, the company’s crashes per million miles driven (CPMM) rate has decreased by 37 percent globally.
Worldwide, the number of total crashes in 2010 declined by 8 percent to 5.53 CPMM.
Going forward, we have established a Healthy Future 2015 Goal to achieve a 15 percent improvement in fleet safety performance, with a target CPMM of <4.9.
