Zero work-related injuries and illnesses have been long-standing goals for Alcoa. But when zero first became the target, it seemed unreachable. "Accidents are inevitable" was often the response.
They're not. We can attain zero. It is possible, and, in many locations, it is already here thanks to dedicated effort and a firm commitment to our core values, one of which is to work safely, promote wellness, and protect the environment.
In the 12-month period ending April 30, 2013:
|35.2% of Alcoa's 181 locations worldwide had zero recordable injuries; 50% had zero days away, restricted, or transferred; and 74.7% had zero lost workdays.
||99.6% of our employees had zero days away, restricted, or transferred.
||99.9% of our employees had zero lost workdays.
Working in teams and as individuals, we can build on this outstanding effort—and see zero extended to every Alcoa location, every day.
