Global: Performance and progress

01.01.2015

Absenteeism continued to fall in 2014. The number of days off work for illness (up to six months) across both our steel and mining operations is now 2.17 for every thousand hours worked, down from 3.16 in 2010. The performance in our mining operations was particularly promising, with an absenteeism rate of only 1.19. We believe that our programmes to discourage alcohol and tobacco consumption are key factors here. Nonetheless, we know there is scope to improve our health monitoring systems and we are discussing this with the European Works Council.
