Calculate Your Company’s Incident Rate
Incident rates are a metric used to compare your company’s safety performance against a national or state average. This comparison is a safety benchmark to gauge performance with other companies in the same business group, so you can make an “apples to apples” comparison. Different business groups and industries have different average rates.
Check specific incident rates from the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics to compare your rate with the same business group [LINK TO BUREAU OF LABOR STATISTICS PDF]. Your OSHA 300 log and 300A Summary will have the information needed to find your rate of recordable injuries. Then use the tool below to calculate your company’s rate.
Because your rate impacts your business in many ways, it’s critical to make sure you’re recording actual recordable injuries. Do not over-report injuries or submit your logs with incorrect data. If you have questions or need assistance, contact our Safety Consulting Team for a recordable injury and 300 Log analysis.
