Number of fatalities
The total number of Company’s employees and/or Contractor’s employees who died as a result of an incident. ‘Delayed’ deaths that occur after the incident are to be included if the deaths were a direct result of the incident. For example, if a fire killed one person outright, and a second died three weeks later from lung damage caused by the fire, both are reported.
