Case Study LTI WHY BIG ORGANIZATIONS SO CRAZY ABOUT IT

Case Study LTI WHY BIG ORGANIZATIONS SO CRAZY ABOUT IT
.
.
You may have seen them or hear them. A celebration called 1 Million or 500 thousands hours working with no LTI (Loss Time Injury) 
.
And you may wonder, why it is so important to them?
.
.
LTI is a lagging indicator of a performance of an organization in HSE. It shows how many hours worked without anybody badly injured.
.
There are 3 perspectives that we can look into and I will show it to you now.
.
#1 PRODUCTIVITY
Having everybody working from day 1 until the end means excellent productivity. This of course exclude the allowable leaves taken.
.
For high risk operations such as construction, drilling and transportation this means a lot.
Because their risk for worst injury is very high such as broken limbs, fatality and loss of body parts.
.
.
#2 COST
Having zero LTI means lower medical bills, long paid leaves due to injury, operation down time and lower needs of immediate expenditure to curb the accident
.
If these costs calculated the amount can scale up. DOSH made a website to do these calculations. You can visit it here: http://oshacc.dosh.gov.my/

#3 MORALE
Working in a safe workplace is a morale booster to the employees. They know that their safety is the priority to the employer and that matters.
.
I remember my colleagues whom are welders shared their experience working in a very unsafe yard. Every day the fear of getting killed haunted them. Making them to think many times when going to work. And be extra cautious of their surrounding at all times because they do not know when a 10 tonne pipe will be lifted over them.
.
In the end, they prefer not to work for long and quickly resign for the sake of their safety.
.
.
#4 IMAGE TO THE COMPANY
.
Big companies like Petronas, Shell or Sunway they put safety as the first priority. And this priority is conveyed to everybody doing business with them through contracts or project requirements.
.
Having a good record of LTIs will be a huge advantage to do business with these giants.
You can see the bosses while presenting the company, they will boast and cherish their Safety performance before they start talking about their services and products.
.
.
A big question here is, does this LTI can be applied to all industries?
The answer is yes.
.
Is it the only KPI that can be installed?
Unfortunately, no.
.
I will share with you other KPIs that should be chosen according to the performance of your organization in the next Case Studies.
