We aspire to the highest standards for people and will continue to raise these standards in line with our goal of zero harm.
Progress during the last year
Our Total Recordable Injury Frequency Rate (TRIFR)* amounted to 3.1 2022 and we undertook several initiatives, such as safety campaigns, to make improvements in this area.
Diversity and inclusion (D&I) was also high on the agenda. It included initiatives such as a group-wide D&I nano learning and training and skills development programs.
Sandvik was included on the Allbright, a non-profit foundation that aims to create a more diverse business sector, green list assessment of Swedish companies. We also entered into a strategic partnership with the International Women in Mining organization to improve gender equality in the industry.
Reduction of TRIFR
We need to reduce our Total Recordable Injury Frequency Rate (TRIFR)* to 1.9 by 2030 to achieve a 50 percent reduction. The table and graph show the reduction of TRIFR for 2016–2022.
*Total recordable injuries per million hours worked
In 2022, the TRIFR increased slightly. The increase is mainly due to acquisitions that impacted the TRIFR trend negatively.
The dotted line is an indication of how well we are in line with the 2030 target, meaning we in 2022 are still in line with our target.
The target is adjusted for structural changes.
Women in managerial positions
Our target is to increase the share of women in managerial positions to one third by 2030. We have a plan in place to accelerate the increase of female managers in the years to come, which is necessary to achieve the 2030 goal.
