Performance Data

We want to be transparent about how we are tracking on our sustainability commitments. We rely on year-over-year data to help measure our performance. We report this data using the internationally recognized Global Reporting Initiative (GRI) reporting framework.

The data points reported are ones that are critical to our business and important to our stakeholders. For more information about how we manage each of these areas, read our management approaches. All data tables can be downloaded here.

Health and Safety Performance

  • 403-1 (LA6) Occupational Safety and Health

    Employee Blood-Lead Average

    The adjusted Occupational Health and Safety Administration’s (OSHA) standard for medical reassignment of an employee is 53 micrograms of lead per deciliter of whole blood (“μg/dL”).(1) Doe Run sets its maximum limit at 30 μg/dL. If any employee has a blood-lead average that reaches 30 μg/dL, they are temporarily reassigned to other work.

    Total Lost-Time Accidents

    According to OSHA, lost time is defined as a nonfatal traumatic injury that causes any loss of time from work beyond the day or shift it occurred, or a nonfatal nontraumatic illness/disease that causes disability at any time.

    According to the Mine Safety and Health Administration (MSHA), lost time is defined as days which the employee would have worked but could not because of an occupational injury or an occupational illness.

    Total Case Incident Rate (TCIR)

    TCIR is the number of OSHA recordable and MSHA reportable incidents per 200,000 personnel hours worked. OSHA recordables are incidents that require lost time, restricted duty, prescription medication, involve broken bones or stitches, involve imbedded matter in the eye, or burns of a defined size and severity.

    1. The OSHA General Industry Lead Standard is written in units of μg of Pb/100g of whole blood. Doe Run reports their blood lead values in μg of Pb/dL of whole blood, and all values in this report are presented as μg/dL. The conversion used is 1 μg/100g = 1.05 μg/dL
    2. Glover is included in the Metals Division for blood-lead data only due to the nature of their work.
    3. Employees at corporate headquarters are not required to be tested.
    4. Some 2016 and 2017 data has been corrected here.
    5. Due to an analytical testing issue at an outside lab, FPI blood-lead data is reported as of July 31. All other blood-lead data is representative of the full calendar year. FPI calculations exclude the last quarter of inaccurate test data.
    6. Significant reductions in blood-lead levels >19 resulted from continued focus on employee hygiene and housekeeping procedures, and equipment changes at Resource Recycling and SEMO.
    7. Adjustments have been made for consistent rounding compared to 2017 published data.
