Examples of SHE Performance Indicators:
A measurement of the number or severity of events over a period of time which indicates safety performance through the occurrence or absence of incidents. When safety is good, measures of accidents which have occurred are low and, relative to these, measures of near misses are higher. SHE Performance Indicator’s are used for comparative purposes over time, in relation to targets and for comparison between companies or types of activities for example.

Where appropriate, the indicators are calculated both separately for Employees and Contractors and combined to give a site/facility indicator.

Period of Measurement:
The period (usually one year) over which safety performance is measured for calculating the SHE Performance Indicators for The Company as a whole.

Reporting Period:
The period over which indicators have to be reported to e.g. Central Office.

Specific Indicators:
(1) Total Recordable Cases (TRC)
Total injury and fatality cases excluding first aid cases:
LTI + RWC + MTC = TRC

(2) Number of Fatalities (FAT)
Number of Fatalities = FAT

(3) Number of Lost Time Injuries Including Fatalities (LTI)
Number of Lost Time Injuries + FAT = LTI

(4) Lost Work Days (LWD)
Number of Lost Work Days = LWD

(5) Number of Restricted Work Cases (RWC)
Number of Restricted Work Cases = RWC

(6) Number of Medical Treatment Cases (MTC)
Number of Medical Treatment Cases = MTC

(7) Number of First Aid Cases (FAC)
Number of First Aid Cases = FAC

(8) Number of Near Misses
Number of Near Misses

(9) Lost Time Injury Frequency Rate (LTIF)
LTI per 1,000,000 hours at work:
[LTI X 10e6] / [Total number of at work hours for the reporting period] = LTIF

(10) Lost Time Injury Severity Rate (LTISR)
The sum of lost workdays for Lost Time Injuries excluding Fatalities per 1,000,000 hours at work :
[Lost work days (excluding fatalities) x 10e6] / [Total number of at work hours for the reporting period] = LTISR
(11) Average Lost Days Per LTI (ALD)
The average severity of each injury is indicated by:
Days lost due to Lost Time Injuries (excluding fatalities) / [LTI - FAT] = ALD

(12) Total Recordable Case Frequency Rate (TRCF)
[TRC X 10e6] /[Total number of at work hours for the reporting period] = TRCF

(13) Lost Time Injury Absence Percentage (ABS%)
Number of lost work days due to Lost Time Injury excluding Fatalities as a percentage of the total number of available work days:-
[Lost work days (excluding fatalities) x 100] / [Total number of available work days for the reporting period] = ABS%

(14) Total Reportable Occupational Illnesses (TROI)
Number of new cases of occupational illnesses (including illness resulting in death) = TROI

(15) Total Reportable Occupational Illness Frequency (TROIF)
Number of new cases of occupational illnesses (including illness resulting in death) per 1,000,000 at work hours:
[TROI x 10e6] / [Total number of at work hours for reporting period].

(16) Sickness Absence Percentage (ILLN%)
Number of work days lost due to sickness absence as a percentage of the total number of available work days:-
[Number of sickness absence days x 100] / [Total number of available work days for the reporting period] = ILLN%

(17) Spills and Releases Indicator (SRI)
Number of spills and releases occurring during the reporting period according to two categories:
Number of releases below 50kg = SRI<50kg
Number of releases above 50kg = SRI>50kg

(18) Number of External Complaints (COMPL)
Number of External Complaints including penalties from the authorities = COMPL

(19) Number of Material Damage Accidents (MDA)
Number of accidents resulting in Material Damage according to two categories:
Number of cases below $10,000 = MDA<$10K
Number of cases above $10,000 = MDA>$10K

(20) Material Damage Costs (MD$)
Actual or (if not available) best estimate Material damage costs in US$=MD$

(21) Number of Vehicle Accidents (VHA)
Total number of vehicle accidents = VHA

(22)Transport/Distribution Accident Rate (DAR)
Number of accidents per transport medium (road, rail, ship) occurring during transportation, calculated per million tonnes of goods transported:-
Number of transport accidents/10e6 tonnes transported by road/rail/ship = DAR

(200K/ # of hours worked) x # of RIs = rate.

example: 3 RIs in 50K hours

200K/50K = 4
4 x 3 = a rate of 12
