Zero: it is without a doubt the single most important performance goal ArcelorMittal Dofasco has ever had. Zero accidents. Zero injuries.
Our ambition is to be the safest company in our sector. This is a challenge that we are determined to achieve. The long-term goal is to have no fatalities or lost time injuries, and our company-wide safety program, Journey to Zero, is designed to reach this goal.
We measure safety performance through what is known as the lost-time injury frequency rate or LTIFR. This is the number of lost time injuries per million hours worked, for both employees and contractors. We investigate all accidents in detail, but ArcelorMittal’s Journey to Zero program is about preventing accidents by understanding risks and hazards, and taking appropriate action on them. This involves setting up advanced safety monitoring systems, which take into account both the physical and human aspects of workplace safety.
We aim to establish a culture of shared vigilance, in which everyone takes responsibility not just for their own safety, but also for the safety of those around them, including the many contractors who work at our facilities.
