Since we began to disclose health and safety information in 2003, we have maintained a record of zero workplace fatalities among our employees. There have also been no confirmed incidents of non-compliance with relevant laws or regulations relating to the provision of a safe working environment and the protection of employees from occupational hazards which have a significant impact on Swire Properties.
One of our 2025 KPIs is to achieve and maintain a LTIR at or below 1.2 for non-hotel operations, and at or below 2.0 for hotel operations. As part of our management approach to prevent workplace accidents, we continued to conduct education and awareness talks for our employees tailored for different areas of our business throughout 2021. These included managing deliveries that involve a truck-mounted crane for frontline employees in our Hong Kong portfolio; slip, trip and fall (“STF”) prevention in our Chinese Mainland portfolio; and construction safety, working at height and prevention of heatstroke for workers at our construction sites.
In 2021, our LTIR decreased by 23.2% compared to 2020 and our lost day rate (“LDR”)8 decreased by 26.5% compared to 2020.
