Health and safety performance

We measure our safety performance by a combination of lagging and leading indicators, with increasing emphasis on monitoring, preventative actions and behaviours.

Lagging and leading indicators

The principal lagging indicator is the one day lost time accident per million hours worked (lost time accident rate or LTAR). Leading indicators are used to measure progress against each of our strategy areas.
