A brief description of the methodology used to track and calculate the number of recordable incidents of work-related injury or ill health :

Organization wide, employees are required to report injuries, by the end of their shift or within 24 hours of the injury (this includes volunteers). The supervisor is then given the following 24 hours from notification to conduct a post-accident/incident investigation. When all details are gathered, the supervisor or acting supervisor is to complete a Supervisor Accident Report within 48 hours of the injury. The data is tracked through our new online reporting portal, SmartSheets. That report once submitted, goes to the Office of Risk Management and Insurance for review and follow-up. For this report, only counted FTE so the number of incidents reflects incidents per FTE.


Annual number of recordable incidents of work-related injury or ill health per 100 FTE employees:
2.76
