Fluor office and field performance executed 306 million self-perform and subcontractor work hours in 2015. During that time, the company experienced a significant decrease in the Total Case Incident Rate (TCIR), which dropped to 0.24 in 2015. This represents a 25 percent improvement in 2015 versus the previous year.
Fluor also experienced a 21 percent improvement in its combined Days Away, Restricted and Transferred (DART) workday cases, which dropped to 0.11 in 2015. Successfully managing health and safety issues to the lowest possible risk levels is an essential component of strategy and integral to the way Fluor does business. Fluor continues to be recognized as one of the safest contractors in the engineering and construction industry, and we thoroughly evaluate any cases that occur to immediately identify areas for improvement.
In addition to best practice sharing, another method Fluor uses to continuously improve and prevent incidents is the implementation and tracking of leading indicators. An HSE leading indicator is a measurable activity or observation that can be proactively used to improve performance by eliminating defects in current processes or work activities that lead to Injuries, property damage, regulatory non-compliance, negative perceptions or undermine the HSE culture.
Fluor has benchmarked directly with Clients and industry groups to develop its corporate and site leading indicator programs, creating programs to detect and correct problems before an incident takes place. Tracking and managing leading indicators is a critical part of Fluor's continuous improvement initiatives.
