Indicators related to occupational injuries

The results for 2018 demonstrate that the indicators related to the number of accidents and injuries at LUKOIL Group organizations remained at the 2017 level. The main causes of accidents were falls of employees, traffic accidents, and exposure to harmful substances, machines, and mechanisms (11 cases out of 16).

Indicators related to the level of occupational injuriesIn accordance with the GRI Occupational Health and Safety (2018) standard.
Russian entities of LUKOIL Group Foreign entities of LUKOIL Group
Rate of fatalities 0.01 0
Rate of high-consequence injuries (net of fatalities) 0.03 0.03

Notes. 1) The rate of fatalities as a result of work-related injury = the number of fatalities that occurred as a result of the work / the number of hours worked x 1,000,000 man-hours. 2) The rate of high-consequenceHigh-consequence work-related injuries – an accident that led to the following consequences: an employee died or was injured to such an extent that they were unable to restore their health within six months after the date of the injury, has not restored their health, or is not expected to be able to restore their health. work-related injuries is the number of serious injuries resulting from work (excluding fatalities) / number of hours worked x 1,000,000 man-hours. The lower both parameters are, the better. 3) The rate of high-consequence work-related injuries for the Russian entities of LUKOIL Group includes serious accidents qualifed in accordance with Russian laws.

Indicators related to the frequency of occupational injuries
Russian entities Foreign entities
2016 2017 2018 2016 2017 2018
Lost Time Accident Frequency Rate (LTAFR) 0.21 0.19 0.19 0.05 0.24 0.29
Lost Time Injury Frequency Rate (LTIFR) no data no data 0.11 no data no data 0.18

Notes. The Lost Time Accident Frequency Rate (LATFR) = the number of fatal accidents / the average number of employees for the reporting period × 1,000 employees. The Lost Time Injury Frequency Rate (LITFR) = the number of temporary disability injuries / the number of man-hours worked x 1,000,000 man-hours. The lower both parameters are, the better.

The main measures to reduce injuries comprise intensifying work to improve the safety culture and providing workers with modern means of individual and collective protection.

Due to greater attention in recent years from LUKOIL Group entities to occupational safety issues in contractor organizations, in 2018 the number of accidents at LUKOIL production sites saw a more than twofold decrease. At the same time, the number of injured also declined (by almost threefold). In contractor organizations in Russia, the most frequent causes of accidents are falls of people from heights and impacts from moving loads (four out of eight total cases).

At this stage, the main measures related to improving safety in contractor organizations working at the Company’s facilities are:

  • Pre-tender assessments
  • Technical audits of employee preparedness to perform work at the production facilities of LUKOIL Group entities
  • Including the provisions of the corporate standard STO 1.6.5.-2016 “Requirements for Contractor Organizations” into contracts
  • Production controls
