WESFARMERS SUSTAINABILITY REPORT 2017

Enhancing the health and safety of our team

Kmart’s total recordable injury frequency rate (TRIFR) during the year was 24.6, a 9.2 per cent reduction on the previous financial year. Its lost time injury frequency rate (LTIFR) was 6.0, a 10 per cent decrease on last year.

Primary reasons for the fall in injury rates was a 15 per cent reduction in sprains and strain injuries and a 13 per cent reduction in slips, trips and falls compared to the previous year due to improved supervision and housekeeping.

Key projects planned for 2018 include the introduction of a fitness for work application and strengthening program, a safety foundation training module for managers, and new auditing and monitoring tools to improve compliance and consistency in performance across all stores and distribution centres.
