What is Total Recordable Incident Rate (TRIR)?

The number of Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) recordable Injury and Illness cases recorded multiplied by 200,000, then divided by the total number of employee labor hours worked.

Why should Total Recordable Incident Rate (TRIR) be measured?

Total Recordable Incident Rate (TRIR) is an indicator of the diligence with which the company implements worker safety controls and procedures. High values for this KPI may be indicative of inadequate safety training programs, out of date or malfunctioning machinery or a lack of sufficient safety employees or inspectors within the company. TRIR may be reduced if managers investigate worksites after accidents or near misses to identify the root cause of the problem and prevent future incidents from occurring as well as increasing the number of inspections prior to safety incidents.
