## What is a good accident incident rate?

For instance, if you had 1 January incident over 10,000 hours worked, then your January average incident rate would be (1*200,000)/10,000, or 20. For another example, if you had eight accidents over 400,000 hours worked by employees in a year, you would calculate the accident rate as (8*200,000)/400,000, or 4.

## What is incident frequency rate?

Definition – What does Injury Frequency Rate mean? An injury frequency rate is the number of injuries per 1,000,000 employee-hours worked. It is an indicator of the state of health and safety at a workplace. It provides an idea about the organization's efforts to protect the workers from work related hazards.

**How do you calculate incident frequency?**

The formula for calculating your accident frequency rate is the number of reported accidents multiplied by 200,000, divided by the number of employee hours worked.

**How is safety Ltifr calculated?**

The formula is as follows: ([Number of lost time injuries in the reporting period] x 1,000,000) / (Total hours worked in the reporting period). And voila! Your company's LTIFR is 2.4, which means there were 2.4 lost time injuries for every one million man hours worked.
