AES tracks and reports safety statistics on a monthly basis using a format that is substantially based on USA Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) reporting requirements (29 CFR 1904). Safety metrics that are regularly monitored include unsafe behaviors, unsafe conditions, near misses, and progress on implementation of safety action plans identified in the overall AES three-year action plan.
First aid incidents, OSHA recordables, Lost Time Incidents (LTIs) and fatal events are also reported on an ongoing basis.
Measuring Safety Performance
AES has made significant progress toward achieving our goal of world-class safety performance, as indicated by improvements in our safety metrics:
From 2009 to 2011, LTI case rates decreased 29.6 percent for AES people and 54.9 percent for construction contractors.
LTI cases also decreased by more than 60 percent for operational contractors supporting AES' businesses in 2009 and 2011.
