In this report we analyse all safety reporting provided by ASX200 companies as at 31 March 2020.
Serious safety incidents come at significant personal cost to employees and financial costs to employers. These incidents can have long term negative effects on employees and their families. For employers, these incidents bring a loss of productivity and operational performance while exposing the company to potential compensation claims. More broadly, companies risk losing their social licence to operate if such incidents are seen as systemic by the broader community.
