EHS PERFORMANCE 2018 (COMPARED WITH 2017)
The following table and graphs depict the EHS performance in 2018 within each category:
An OIR rate (OSHA Incident Rate) of 0.58 was achieved (prior year: 0.65), with a Lost Time Injury Rate (LTIR) of 0.33 (prior year: 0.41). For the German sites, the Thousand Man Quota (TMQ; reportable injuries per thousand employees) in 2018 was 2.67 (prior year: 4.44). The OSHA (Occupational Safety and Health Administration) indicators serve as an internationally applied standard for work-related injuries.
The overall increase in direct CO2 emissions compared to 2017 and 2016 is based on generally higher production rates in 2018, the change of product mix in the production units, and the starting up of the Propanol 2 unit.
The relatively higher water consumption is mainly driven by higher production rates and the new Propanol 2 unit in Bay City.
OXEA encourages both paternity and maternity leave models and provides for the employees according to the regulations of the countries in which OXEA operates.
