The Health Safety Security and Environment (HSSE) team at joint integrity specialist Hydratight has announced a new record low in Total Case Incident Rate (TCIR).
Total Case Incident Rate calculates the number of work related injuries per 200,000 hrs of exposure to employees over a 12 month period.
The global rating of 0.24 is the lowest since records began 20 years ago and is an encouraging marker in the international company’s drive towards zero.
It beats the historical best figure of 0.30 which was recorded in back to back months in 2010 and is part of a long-term sustained improvement since the mid-1990s. Hydratight’s ultimate result from its Goal Zero scheme is zero quality defects, zero environmental incidents and zero injury or damage.
Hydratight has maintained detailed safety and environmental performance records since 1996.
