ISN leveraged its platform data to analyse over 60 000 recordable serious injuries and fatalities (SIFs) that occurred at contractor companies from 2018 to 2020 and an additional nearly 10 000 recordable incidents from OSHA 300 Logs from 2020. The findings included in the 2021 SIFs Insights report aim to help organisations identify trends in recorded incidents and provide actions that they can take to mitigate future SIFs.

ISN's newest whitepaper analyses over 60 000 serious injuries and fatalities within contractor companies

Highlights from the SIF Insights report include:

  • While days away from work decreased by 61% from 2019 to 2020, the analysis from ISN showed a three year average SIF rate of 391 incidents per 100 000 workers spiking drastically in 2020 to 429 incidents per 100 000 workers.
  • A higher number of SIFs are seen during the summer months, particularly July (average of 587 monthly incidents across the three years analysed) and August (average of 579 monthly incidents).
  • Due to the high-risk nature of the tasks performed, 42% of all SIFs and 48% of fatalities in 2020 occurred among contractors in the construction space.
  • The statistically significant leading indicators that had a strong correlation to higher SIF rates included operating a commercial vehicle (69% higher SIF rate) and receiving a citation within the last three years (43% higher SIF rate).
