Health and Safety Performance Indicators (2014)

  • Share

This document contains the recommended definitions and reporting
boundaries for lagging health and safety performance indicators to
be used by International Council on Mining and Metals member
companies for the purposes of benchmarking activities.

Where these principles may conflict in application, Section 2 describes specific situations that may be included or excluded from recording requirements.

The document only addresses whether or not injuries and diseases should be recorded and how to classify them according to the ICMM categories. It does not address lost time accounting or severity rates as described in previous ICMM guidance or conventions in common use by member companies.

This document supersedes previous ICMM guidance on health and safety performance indicators. It should be noted that the scope of reporting and the definitions in this document are not directly in line with the scope and definitions used within any other reporting schemes.
