Lower accident frequency

Our key performance indicators (KPI) for all spheres of safety show a positive development in our accident figures. For example, we managed to reduce the number of industrial accidents with lost days from 36 in 2013 to 18 in 2014. Meanwhile, the number of reportable accidents dropped from 63 in 2013 to 36 in 2014.
The frequency of accidents, measured by the number of work-related accidents with lost days per million hours worked, went down from 3.6 in the previous year to 1.7. The accident severity rate, that is the number of days lost per million hours worked, also dropped from 65.0 to 47.6. In 2014, the Messer Group’s frequency rate of reportable industrial accidents per million hours worked was 3.5 in contrast to 6.3 in 2013. There were no accidental fatalities.
