What is Lost Time Injury?
Lost time injury refers to an incident when an employee has missed or is missing work due to an injury due to work or work conditions. Injury can occur on-site but incidents that happen off-site that affect an employee’s ability to work will also be recorded by a Health and Safety official.
Why is Lost Time Injury Rate Important?
LTI is a key metric for ACB Group when measuring monthly health and safety performance. Keeping this metric low ensures that our insurance premiums remain low and is also an assurance that ACB Group can use resources to complete programs on time.
What is the LTI Benchmark?
The LTI benchmark is calculated by using an approximated benchmarking figure. 200,000 hours is used as the international hours worked denominator to calculate LTI’s. At ACB Group we always strive for zero.
