Health & Safety Performance Report

Our annual Health and Safety Performance Report is an important long-term initiative of the Australian chemistry industry. It has provided detailed insights into the industry’s health and safety performance since 2000.

The Report also plays an important role in promoting the principles of health and safety to the industry’s value chain partners, external stakeholders, and the broader community. Through the Report and accompanying events and communications, we are able to share examples of best practice approaches implemented by our members and encourage others to take action

The Report shows improvement for the fourteenth consecutive year against the industry’s key metric, Lost Time Injury Frequency Rate (LTIFR).
