A group of INTERCARGO members have checked with INTERCARGO Secretariat on whether it has industry average of crew Injury frequency and lost time. It is understood that with crew Injury as one of their internal key performance indicators, those members need an average of bulk carrier industry to benchmark themselves.
Widely acceptable KPIs include:
- Lost Time Injury Frequency (LTIF): LTIF is the number of Lost Time Injuries per unit exposure hours. The most common unit in respect of LTIF is one million man hours.
- Total Recordable Case Frequency (TRCF): TRCF is the number of Total Recordable Cases (i.e., Restricted Work Cases + Medical Treatment Cases + Lost Time Indicators) per unit exposure hours. The most common unit in respect of TRCF is 1 million man hours. (refer to the explaining notes at the end of this message).
Supported and jointly developed by INTERCARGO members, it is to introduce and commission the Benchmarking scheme on crew injury frequency and lost time for bulk carriers. This introduction explains the technical details and refers to a real case example to show the simple and straight forward Report Form. It also show the process of assessment and results of LTIF and TRCF indicators.
