How ready is your organization for a Safety Incentive Program (SIP)?

A Safety Incentive Program? What a fabulous way to get everyone at work involved in safety activities and talking about them! Who wouldn’t like to receive an award or a gift for their contribution and commitment to Safety? I would! However, having a SIP can easily turn into a nightmare especially in our beloved Nigeria where corruption is like having breakfast. Yep I have come to realise that corruption is so normal! I went to a...

How to calculate Total Recordable Case Frequency (TRCF)

TRCF = (TRC x 1,000,000) / Man hours TRC (Total Recordable Case) is the sum of all work-related fatalities, lost time injuries (LTIs), restricted work cases/injuries (RWCs) and medical treatment cases/injuries (MTCs) 
TRCs = LTIs + RWCs + MTCs Therefore, TRCF = Number of LTI + MTC + RWC X 1,000,000 / Man hours LTIs In a previous post, I defined Lost time as when an injury that occurs results in the involved person or persons staying...
