## Is Trir and LTIR the same?

So, how is this different than TRIR? All incidents which result in occupational injury will be recorded using Total Case Incident Rate (TCIR) or Total Recordable Incident Rate (TRIR). Only those which result in more than one day away from work (LTIs) are recorded using LTIR.

**What is LTIR in OSHA?**

Lost Time Incident Rate is a standard OSHA metric that calculates the number of incidents that result in time away from work. Not all recordable incidents result in lost time, which is why there is a separate calculation for these more severe incidents.

### What is LTIR rate?

Lost Time Injury rate follows a simple formula to indicate your performance. Divide the total number of lost time injuries in a certain time period by the total number of hours worked in that period, then multiply by 200,000 to get the LTIR.

**What is the difference between RIR and LTIR?**

Your RIR is the Recordable Injury/Incident Rate. You may be asked for your LTIR which is Lost Time Injury/Incident Rate. This is total from column (K). For a 3 year total you have to refer to 3 year’s of logs.

#### What does TRIR stand for?

Total Recordable Incident Rate

TRIR is one of the most important safety metrics to track. What is TRIR and how is a TRIR calculation made? The Total Recordable Incident Rate is a measure of your company’s past safety performance based on your incident rate. It’s sometimes referred to as Total Case Incident Rate (TCIR) or the OSHA incident rate.

**What is a good LTI rate?**

The lost time injury frequency rate industry average depends on the specific industry. Below are a few 2018 OSHA recordable industry incident rate averages. Use them as general benchmarks for your own organization’s performance. Across all industries, OSHA’s average incident rate is 2.9 per 100 full-time employees.

## How is RIR calculated?

You can calculate your TCIR or TRIR by using the following formula: (Number of OSHA Recordable injuries and illnesses X 200,000) / Employee total hours worked = Total Case Incident Rate.

**What is a good OSHA incident rate?**

2.9 cases per 100

A good TCIR rate is relative to the industry and type of work done, but once you’ve completed your calculation you can compare it to findings from the Bureau of Labor Statistics (BLS). Overall, the average OSHA Incident Rate is 2.9 cases per 100 full-time employees in private industry.

### What is a good RIR?

A good TRIR is 3.0 or less. A perfect TRIR is zero. Many companies in ISNetworld® will grade your company based on your TRIR score so it is very important that you keep it as low as possible.

**What is a good TRIR?**

#### How do I get TRIR?

The formula for how to calculate TRIR is simple: the number of incidents, multiplied by 200,000, then divided by the total number of hours worked in a year. The number 200,000 is used because it is the total number of hours 100 employees would work in a year (100 workers x 40 hours x 50 weeks).

**How do I calculate LTI?**

Divide your total number of lost time injuries (in a given time period) by the total number of hours worked (in that period). Multiply the results by 200,000 (this is the generally accepted baseline of LTI established by OSHA; it represents 100 employees working 50 weeks or approximately one year).

## Is the trifr the same as the LTIFR?

The TRIFR is not to be confused with the similarly named LTIFR (lost time injury frequency rate). This latter metric is limited to the number of fatalities and lost time injuries per million employees and does not include other types of injuries.

**When to include LTIR in the TRIR / tcir calculation?**

Only those which result in more than one day away from work (LTIs) are recorded using LTIR. An incident in which an employee suffers an occupational injury, but can return to work the following day will be recorded as a part of the TRIR/TCIR calculation but does not need to be included in the LTIR.

### How can the LTIR be lowered organically?

LTIR can be lowered organically by cultivating a safe working environment and engaging employees in safety best practices. To calculate the LTIR, you will need to know the following: The total number of hours worked during the reporting period time by all employees You can then plug these figures into the following LTIR calculation formula:

**What does a high LTIR mean for a company?**

The LTIR of a company gives employees, insurers, and stakeholders an indication of how safe the company’s practices are. A high number means that more employees have had to take time away from work due to work-based incidents.
