At FMC Technologies, the health and safety of our employees and their families, our customers, contractors, visitors and communities are of the utmost importance, and we have established programs to ensure we are doing everything we can to protect them.
The Destination Zero program is our commitment to safety and a focus on our common goal as a company: zero safety incidents, worldwide, every day. We expect all employees to use these three key safety behaviors:
Lost Workday and Recordable Incident Rates
Recognized as a key metric for tracking safety performance, Lost Workday and Recordable Incident Rates measure the impact and frequency of safety incidents.
We also measure the severity of safety incidents on a scale; with red incidents indicating high probability of a serious incident, yellow indicating less serious, and green indicating a minor incident. Both "near miss" and actual incidents are reported using this scale.
In addition, we recognize there are specifc areas within our operations that need special attention: hand and finger injuries; dropped objects; accidents involving high pressure; and automotive accidents.
