Safety Performance - 2019 group performance
We use a Fatalities and Weighted Injuries Index to measure safety performance across the Group.
To measure our performance we adopted and adapted the railway industry’s Fatalities and Weighted Injuries (FWI) index.
We did this as it is widely regarded as the most effective measure of safety performance.
Our performance in 2019 demonstrates the benefit of our systems, policies and investment:
- We delivered a significant improvement in our FWI score to 4.513 (2018: 9.286)
- On a per million miles basis the improvement was even more significant 0.006 (2018: 0.013)
- It was the first year on record that the Group did not have a responsible fatality in any of its operations
