Where applicable, data has been calculated according to industry standard GSI formulas.

NB this data is now restated for the whole company, not only the farming division, as has been previously reported to the Global Salmon Initiative.

 

NB Following a series of internal checks, the absence rate data methodology has been updated and therefore data calculated for 2018, was determined to be incorrect.

In calculating ‘lost days’, Bakkafrost includes only scheduled work days, beginning the day after the accident or injury.

 

In calculation lost day rate, Bakkafrost includes the number of 'lost days' due to injury. Calculated as: (Total number of lost days/total number of working hours)x 180,000.

 

In calculating lost time injury rate, Bakkafrost includes the number of injuries at work and work-related, including fatalities, leading to unfitness for work and absence from the next working day or working shift between January – December. Calculated as: (Total number of lost time injuries/total number of working hours) x 1,000,000.

Number of fatalities of workers and contractors working at company premises between January – December.

All absence related to one's own personal health. Calculated as: Total number of absent days/Total work days

Occupational disease rate is not available.
