The self-perform and subcontractor work hours executed by Fluor office and field in 2021 resulted in a Total Case Incident Rate (TCIR) of 0.37 (0.33 excluding COVID-19 cases), vs. the industry average of 0.70 (U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics data for construction companies with more than 1,000 employees). Fluor had a combined Days Away, Restricted and Transferred (DART) workday case rate of 0.20 (0.16 excluding COVID-19 cases).
Successfully managing health and safety issues to the lowest possible risk levels is 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 tracking of leading indicators. A leading indicator is a measurable activity or observation that can help detect and correct problems before an incident takes place.
Fluor benchmarked directly with clients and industry groups to develop its corporate and site leading indicator programs. Tracking and managing leading indicators is a critical part of Fluor's continuous improvement initiatives.
