Measurement and Evaluation of Safety Performance
What you'll learn
- Measurement of Safety Performance
- Evaluation of Safety Performance
- Parameters like Frequency rate, Severity rate, Frequency-Severity Index etc.
- Accident Analysis as per IS 3786.
- Assessment of special cases.
- Classification of accident as per IS 3786
- No Specific requirement.
Safety Performance -Safety performance of an organisation is an absolutely reliable manifestation of the quality of management.
Indicators of Safety Performance-
–Frequency Rate (FR)
–Weighted Frequency Rate (WFR)
–Severity Rate (SR)
–Incidence Rate (IR)
–Frequency-Severity Index (FSI)
–Cost Severity rate
–Fatal Accident Frequency Rate (FAFR)
IS-3786: 1983- salient features
•The Indian standard IS-3786 is titled:
“Method for Computation of Frequency and Severity Rates for Industrial Injuries and Classification of Industrial Accidents”
•Originally issued in 1966; revised in 1983
–Appraisal of the progress of an accident prevention campaign
–Comparison of safety performance
–The standard prescribes basic methods for classifying and recording industrial acidents
–Methods for computation of FR, SR and IR of injuries
–Adoption of a uniform system of recording events associated with work injuries
•The Indian standard has two Appendices:
(1) Appendix A and
(2) Appendix B
•Appendix A deals with the Scheduled Charges for Disabilities
–Part A: Total Disablement
–Part B: Partial Disablement
•Appendix B serves as a guide for Classification of Accidents
•Accidents have been classified in 7 categories according to:
B-1: Agency (e.g., lathe machine, hammer, etc.)
B-2: Unsafe Mechanical or Physical Conditions
B-3: Unsafe Act (e.g., working without a valid W.P.)
B-4: Unsafe Personal Factor (e.g., epilepsy, lack of skill)
B-5: Type of Accident (slip/trip/fall, hit by falling object, etc.)
B-6: Nature of Injury (concussion, laceration, fracture, etc.)
B-7: Location of Injury (head, hand, leg, etc.)
