Accounting for days lost due to injuries is a key metric in human resources management and ESG reporting. This data directly reflects the impact of workplace accidents on the operability of the company and the well-being of employees. This article will detail how to account for these lost days, explain why it’s important, and provide examples for better understanding.

1. How to answer this question ?

To correctly address this question, companies must:

1. Calculate the lost days: Record the total number of absence days post-accident, excluding the day of the accident itself and pre-scheduled medical leaves by the employer.

2. Accurately document: Keep a detailed record of incidents and follow-up absences to ensure data accuracy.

3. Align with guidelines: Ensure your calculation method matches the reporting year’s guidelines specified by the ESG framework.

2. Why is it important ?

Understanding the volume of days lost due to injuries allows companies to assess the effectiveness of their health and safety policies. It influences resource planning, productivity, and workplace safety culture. For investors and regulators, it’s an indicator of the company’s diligence in protecting employees.

3. Examples :

– Example A: An employee at a factory is injured and absent for 10 days following the accident. This will be counted as 9 lost days (the day of the accident is excluded).

– Example B: Following several accidents, a company records 50 days of absence. Removing accident days and scheduled medical leaves, 45 days are accounted as days lost due to injuries.

Meticulously collecting days lost due to injuries is essential for any respectable ESG report. It provides valuable insights into working conditions and helps promote initiatives for a safer work environment.
