NS reports on all types of occupational accidents involving injury expressed in the number of lost-time accidents per 1 million hours worked: the Total Recordable Rate (TRR). The TRR for 2022 was 4.0 (2021: 4.0).
In response to the result for 2021, we took several measures last year. For instance, we investigated all relevant TRR accidents and analysed 90% of all accidents involving stumbling. We also launched an improvement campaign for our yards and updated our risk analyses for such locations. Despite these improvement measures, we failed to achieve our target for 2022, a TRR of 3.4. We have therefore proposed further improvement measures in our annual plan for 2023. For example, we are making a conscious choice to focus on the risks with the highest priority. This is why we expect to achieve better results this year. In addition, we have developed an improvement strategy to reduce psychosocial work pressures.
