Apart from a spike in 2011, the number of workplace accidents requiring more than three days of absence has decreased every year since 2009. However, the rate of improvement has been levelling off in recent years. In both 2012 and 2013, we experienced one fatal accident involving contractors per year. These incidents underline the importance of our safety and health strategy, and the need to work even harder to improve our performance as we strive for an accident-free workplace.
Absence from sickness remained at a more or less constant level since 2010, varying from 4.18% to 4.38%.
