Do you know TRIR calculation?
TRIR means – Total Recordable Incident Rate. It is a used lagging indicator used to quantify an organization’s safety performance.
It includes all fatalities, lost time injuries, restricted work cases, cases of substitute work due to injury, and medical treatment cases by medical professionals; It does not include any first aid injury.
Lets have a brief overview of TRIR calculation:
TRIR is calculated by multiplying the number of recordable cases by 200,000, and then dividing that number by the number of manhour at the company.
- If the total recordable cases = 20
- The number of hours worked (Manhour) = 100,000
TRIR calculation will follow thus:
(20 x 200,000)/100,000 = 40
A perfect TRIR score is zero, which means that there is no OSHA recordable incidents and a good TRIR is 3.0 or lower. High TRIR shows poor safety performance; it is important to keep your organization’s TRIR as low as possible.
What are recordable incidents
