We aspire to the highest standards for people and we will keep stepping these standards up higher and higher. Our goal is Zero Harm.
Zero harm to people
- Health and safety improvements part of all product development projects
- Health and safety/risk analyses with all products and services
- Halve Total Recorded Injury Frequency Rate (TRIFR) and occupational illnesses
- All Sandvik employees to be offered health and well-being programs
- Require health and safety improvements plan to reach Sandvik standards from key suppliers
We have five enablers to reach our goals and targets.
How we progress
Total recordable injury frequency rate
Left axis: Stacked column is showing number of injuries per quarter. The column is split by incident classification.
Right axis: Injury frequency rates. The higher one shows TRIFR, the lower shows LTIFR.
Incident classifications: Fatality, LTI, RWI, MTI
KPI’s: TRIFR and LTIFR
Fatality: A work-related incident that results in a fatality
LTI (Lost Time Injury): A work-related incident that results in at least one day's absence for the injured person.
RWI (Restricted Work Injury): A work-related incident that results in at least one day where the injured person can not perform all of their normal work but may be able to do alternative work.
MTI (Medical treatment Injury): A work-related incident that results in the need of medical treatment before the injured person can return to all of their normal work.
TRIFR (Total Recordable Injury Frequency Rate): Sum of all recordable injuries (Fatal + LTI + RWI + MTI) per million worked hours.
LTIFR (Lost Time Injury Frequency Rate): Sum of (Fatal + LTI) per million worked hours
