HSE Statistic Report

Near miss

Danger event that, in slightly different circumstances, could have caused an accident with consequences to people, the environment or assets. These incidents must not be classified as Total Recordable Incidents.


An unplanned event or chain of events that results in harm to people (e.g. injuries) damage to environment and / or assets, loss in production.

Commuting Injury

Term to define all those injuries that occur during the movement of the worker from his/her place of residence (whether provided by the company or his/her own) to the place of work and vice versa. A commuting injury is not included in lost time injury (LTI) or the total number of recordable incidents (TRI) or the calculation for the total frequency of LTI or TRI.

Hospital consultation

Everything that entails damage to assets as the consequence of an incident. It can be traced back to the inappropriate or inopportune use of the assets, the use of the asset beyond standard parameters, explosion, fire, high pressure causing destruction, etc.

Hospital consultation

If the injured person - after the examination carried out by the appointed physician at the Saipem medical structures - is immediately sent to the hospital after the accident for further medical checks and the doctor decides that the injured person can return to work in the absence of permanent damage or temporary total disability, the injured person will be classified as a First Aid Case (FAC). If the hospital consultation involves lost workdays because of transportation from the workplace to the hospital (e.g. for offshore units where the injured person is transported onshore in a helicopter), the time spent will not be considered lost workdays (LWD). The incident will only be considered LTI if the hospital doctor determines, after suitable control, that the person is not capable of carrying out any kind of activity regularly.

First Aid Case (FAC)

Term to define the treatment at any time of minor injuries that normally do not require the specialist intervention of a doctor (scratches, cuts, burns, splinters, foreign bodies in the surface of the eyes, etc.) and any subsequent examinations. This treatment is considered a first aid case even if administered by a doctor.

Lost Time Injury (LTI)

Term to define any injury at work which makes the injured person temporarily incapable of carrying out any regular activity or restricted work during any day/shift after the day in which the injury occurred (in this case "any day" includes days off, weekends and public holidays). The day of the injury is not included in the calculation of the lost workdays. The LTI include fatal accidents, permanent total disability, permanent partial disability and temporary total disability.

Lost Workdays (LWD)

Total number of calendar days in which the injure person has not been fit to work following an LTI. The lost workdays are calculated starting from the second day after the misfortune has occurred and includes the number of calendar days counted up to when the injured person is fit again for work. Lost work days are not counted in the case of death or permanent total disability.

Medical Treatment Case (MTC)

Term to define any injury at work (infected wounds, stitches, deep presence of foreign bodies in the eyes, etc.) which does not entail either lost work days or restricted work days, but requires recurring treatment by the doctor or in accordance with his specific indication or which could be considered a case that falls within the scope of a doctor's expertise. Medical treatment does not include the First Aid Case even if the latter is provided by a doctor or personnel with a recognised qualification.

Kilometres Driven / Mileage

Term to define the kilometres driven by the Company or subcontractors' vehicles within the boundaries of the site for work reasons. Transportation from accommodation to the Work Site must only be counted when the accommodation is provided by the Company.

Road Traffic Accident(RTA)

Any accident involving a vehicle belonging to ERSAI or a subcontractor during the transport of personnel or assets under a contract with Saipem. A road traffic accident must be reported in the Monthly Safety Statistical Report (FORM-COR-HSE-048-E “Monthly Safety Statistical Report”) even if the occupants of the vehicle have not sustained injuries. When one or more of the vehicle's occupants sustain physical injuries, the road traffic accident must be recorded as an RTA and the related event as LTI, WRC, MTC or FAC in the relevant sections of the form according to the consequences reported by the occupants. In this case, the accident will also be recorded in the document FORM-COR-HSE-047-E “Accident Investigation Report”.

Work Related

A event is "work related" when, as far as safety reporting performance is concerned, the event occurs during employment or is related to the contractual activities of personnel, within site boundaries and within normal working hours or overtime. An incident is also considered "work related" when the exposure in the working environment is the discernible cause of or contributes to an injury or significantly aggravates a pre-existing injury. The work environment refers to any location where the definition of HSE Reporting Boundaries applies (see section 5.1). The following types of incident are NOT to be considered "work related": - injuries sustained on Company or subcontractors' premises while off duty: injuries during lunch breaks, rest breaks, in the accommodation area and sanitary facilities; injuries to employees while taking a shower or using the wash room and toilet facilities if the use of these facilities was not occasioned by the employee’s work; those involving third parties, visitors, regulatory agents temporarily present within the site boundaries.

Work Restricted Case (WRC)

Term to define any injury at work, with the exception of deaths or lost work days, which makes the person unfit for performing all his/her activities fully in the days after the injury at work. In this case, the injured person is temporarily assigned to other duties or exempted from some parts of his/her normal duties. An injury can only be classified as a WRC if there is a written statement of no objections from the injured person. The maximum limitation time can be 30 days. If the limitation exceeds 30 days, the injury must be classified as LTI.

Work Restricted Days (WRD)

Total number of calendar days starting from the day the restricted work starts up to the day the workers resumes his/her regular work. When the restricted work follows a period of lost workdays, the restricted workdays are added to.

HSE Inspection

Detailed periodic examination of work place and processes looking for hazards, unsafe practices, breaking of rules and procedures. The HSE inspection includes: HSE Inspection performed by supervisors (might be supported by HSE personnel) using a specific check list; Hygiene inspections performed by medical staff and HSE personnel using a specific check list; Site Management HSE walkabout: short tour of workplace by site/project management (might be supported by Client, HSE personnel, etc.). This can be performed for a general appraisal of HSE, to relaunch HSE commitment, providing immediate feedback to supervisors and employees. A specific check list is not required, however findings should be recorded and tracked until closure. The HSE inspection does not include: inspection and function testing of any equipment, machinery and firefighting and lifesaving equipment; scaffolding inspections; inspections and walkabouts by HSE personnel as part of their daily tasks.

HSE Meeting

Specific HSE meeting held at the work site, base camp, offices and naval assets where HSE matters are predominately discussed. It must be recorded by means of the minutes of the meeting. The HSE meeting shall not include the state of progress meeting (even if HSE issues are discussed).

Risk Assessment (RA)

This is a procedure used to identify, analyse and record the steps involved in performing a specific job, the existing or potential safety hazards associated with each step and the recommended action(s) /procedure(s) that will eliminate or reduce these hazards and the risk of a work related injury. Only a new issue or substantial revision of a RA shall be considered for statistical purposes.

Safety Based Behavior Observation & Reporting card (SBBO&R card)

General term used to identify all the situations and conditions observed and reported by personnel in a project or site. The reported observations are generally dealt with immediately after notification and are resolved by means of short term action and then recorded.

Senior HSE Management Visit

Planned, methodical activity, recorded but not exhaustive, which is carried out by the management and consists of an inspection of the site with the purpose of observing the state of the HSE aspects and the HSE policy's level of implementation. At the end of such visit written feedback (both positive and corrective) must be provided.

Tool Box Talks - TBT

Brief (10 – 15 minutes) meeting, focused on a particular HSE issue and/or hazardous tasks to be performed, conducted by a supervisor in accordance with the provisions/prescriptions in the work permit and/or Job Safety Analysis. It would be useful to have a wrap-up talk (5 minutes maximum) with all the personnel reporting to the supervisor. This would examine the difficulties encountered during the day and include a discussion on any work and organization improvement action. Toolbox Talks do NOT include shift briefings conducted before beginning of each shift to discuss the general tasks to be performed.

Pro-active indicators

These include all safety activities at the site that are intended to strengthen safety awareness and reduce the number of undesired events involving the Company's and the subcontractor's personnel, and all activities carried out within the confines of the site. NOTE: pro-active indicators may only be registered if adequately documented.
