Accidents and near misses

All accidents and near misses reported in DPC are investigated. All records are currently stored and managed by our Estates and Facilities Function. During 2016, we plan to configure our software management system to allow accidents and near misses to be logged and thus, enable us to complete trend analysis, develop a robust reporting and investigating system and ultimately reduce the number of accidents within DPC. DPC are also in the process of implementing a new time and attendance management system which will enable “one click” reports on absence and details (e.g. annual leave, sick, work place injury etc.).

The advancements in our software will provide us with accurate Safety Key Performance Indicators (e.g. total accidents, total days lost due to accident, total man hours worked etc.) in a more efficient way.

Our safety KPIs can be viewed in the Key Figures section of this report.
