Monday, 17 July 2017, Kuching: The 11 work package contracts (WPCs) has registered a zero loss time injury (LTI) in the second quarter of this year after clocking in a total of 2,799,513 man hours for the period.
In the first quarter of this year, the 11 WPCs clocked in a total of 1,719,510 man hours with zero LTI.
The cumulative man hours without LTI up to June 25 is 5,918,670 man hours.
With the latest result, it shows that the LBU’s target of achieving 7 million man hours without LTI by the end of this year for the construction of Pan Borneo Highway Sarawak is nearing the target.
A man-hour or less commonly known as person-hour, is the amount of work performed by the average worker in one hour. It is used in written “estimates” to describe the total amount of uninterrupted labour required to perform the task.
LTI is an injury sustained by an employee that will ultimately lead to the loss of productive work time in the form of worker delays or absenteeism.
An injury is considered a lost time injury only when the worker is unable to perform the regular duties of the job, takes time off for recovery, or is assigned modified work duties for the recovery period.
In term of accident rate, we registered 0.15, which is below our own benchmark of ‹2.5 and 2.81 by National Occupational Accident and Fatality Rate (NOAR). There was no fatality recorded during the period.
