Description/achievement of initiative
Reduce Loss Time Injury Frequency Rate to 1.0 per million hours worked by 2013.
The Journey to Zero programme involves setting up advanced safety monitoring systems and to establish a culture of shared vigilance, in which everyone takes responsibility not just for their own safety, but for the safety of those around them, including many contractors who work at our plants. We are making a special effort to encourage a safety-first mindset among these contractor workers, who have a worse record of accidents and near-hits than our direct employees.
The ArcelorMittal Journey To Zero programme that is aimed at preventing accidents by understanding any risks and by taking appropriate action. For more information please see : http://corporate.arcelormittal.com/corporate-responsibility/workplace/safety/approach
We achieved our target 1 year ahead of the deadline. While the focus remains on Loss Time Injury Frequency Rate reduction, it is also reinforced this year on severer accidents and fatality prevention.
