Reducing lost time accidents

Our health and safety strategy has produced some significant results during 2016:

  • Nine lost time accidents reported, down from 18 in 2015
  • A significant reduction in Lost Time Accident Frequency (lost time accidents per 200,000 hours worked) down from 0.29 in 2015 to 0.15 for 2016, which is ahead of our 2016 Group target of 0.25 (see chart below)
  • A significant reduction in minor (i.e. non-lost time) accidents to 135 from 298 in 2015
  • Ongoing progress with proactive leading indicators through a focus on incidents and near misses with a high potential severity to capture and share the learnings from these
