New Findings on Serious Injuries and Fatalities

New Findings on Serious Injuries And Fatalities

Over the past five years a startling data pattern has emerged in which the rate of recordable injuries has declined, but the rate of serious injuries and fatalities (SIFs) is either flat or increasing. The pattern is seen to varying degrees at the site level as well as at the company and national levels, and calls into question fundamental long-standing safety science assumptions.

Clients expressed concern and asked us for insight that would inform a model for preventing serious injuries and fatalities. Seven global companies (ExxonMobil, PotashCorp, Shell, BHP Billiton, Cargill, Archer Daniels Midland Company, and Maersk) sponsored an initial study to refine and validate a New Paradigm for Serious Injuries and Fatalities to inform the design of a prevention initiative model. Six of the seven companies contributed extensive data which was combined and subjected to indepth qualitative, quantitative, and root cause analysis. Leaders from each company formed a team to support the analysis and interpretation of data and give shape to the design of intervention strategies.
