HSE Performance

Valuing Safety

At Fluor, successfully managing health, safety and environmental (HSE) issues to the lowest possible risk levels is integral to the way we do business. We continue to be recognized as one of the safest contractors in the engineering and construction industry, and we thoroughly evaluate any incidents – including near misses – that occur to immediately identify areas for improvement.

We analyze both actual severity and potential severity, or “what could have happened,” in all HSE incidents to prevent recurrences and issue HSE alerts to promote learning throughout the organization.

A company-wide U.S. Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) standard guides our measurement and reporting process regardless of work location. This includes OSHA guidance on reporting COVID-19 cases.

In 2022, our workforce reported a total of 460 recordable incidents; 165 of which threatened serious injury, fatality or damage; three of which resulted in life-altering injuries; and one that tragically resulted in a fatality. A subcontractor pipefitter died when he was caught in the line of fire between a pipe being lifted and placed by a crane and a pipe fixed to the structure. Finger amputations were our most significant high-severity injuries in 2022.

Total case incident rate, self-perform and subcontractor.

The self-perform and subcontractor work hours executed by our offices and in the field in 2022 resulted in a Total Case Incident Rate (TCIR) of 0.34 (0.31 excluding COVID-19 cases) versus the industry average of 0.90 (U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics data for construction companies with more than 1,000 employees).

Improvements Through Audits

Our HSE audit program allows leadership to measure site leading indicator performance and presents them with tangible opportunities to identify and prioritize areas for improvement.

In 2022, we completed a total of 75 corporate HSE audits. The 45 general worksite audits and the seven Life Critical℠ audits received an average score of 93.83%, while the 23 office audits scored 95.12%, bettering our goal of 90%.

In 2022, we added a behavioral/culture section to the audit tool to capture engagement, goals, values, trust, resilience and other indicators of a healthy safety culture.
