Union Pacific Railroad employees achieved a 1.01 reportable safety incident rate for the first half of the year (through June 30, 2014), matching the best-ever rate achieved in the first half of 2011.
A company’s employee injury rate is calculated using the number of injuries per 200,000 employee hours, which is equivalent to the number of hours worked by 100 full-time employees in a year.
“The safety of our employees, customers and communities is our No. 1 priority, and each day Union Pacific employees embrace a safety mindset to keep themselves and others safe,” said Bob Grimaila, Union Pacific vice president – Safety, Security and Environment. “Through employees’ ‘Courage to Care’ pledge to look out for themselves and others, the Total Safety Culture initiative, and the company’s focus on identifying and mitigating risk, we continue to work toward our commitment to zero injuries.”
