This metric is based on the Global Reporting Initiative (GRI) G4 Guidelines. It covers one of the requirements of Indicator G4-LA6 - 'Type of injury and rates of injury, occupational diseases, lost days, and absenteeism, and total number of work-related fatalities, by region and by gender'.

This indicator also asks for type of injury, occupational diseases, lost days, and absenteeism, and number of work-related fatalities, by region and by gender, for the total workforce (total employees plus supervised workers) and for independed contractors working on-site). (G4-LA6-a, G4-LA6-b)

Health and safety performance is a key measure of an organization’s duty of care. Low injury and absentee rates are generally linked to positive trends in staff morale and productivity. This Indicator shows whether health and safety management practices are resulting in fewer occupational health and safety incidents. An evaluation of trends and patterns may also indicate potential workplace inequity.


This metric is looking for the numbers of workers who died due to a work related incident:

For WikiRate researchers:
Companies who align reports to GRI’s Sustainability Reporting Standards often include a GRI Content Index or Annex where GRI disclosures, with GRI codes, are listed.

  • Use the GRI Index, CTRL F, Command F or search button on source preview to search for this index and metrics within the report

  • Use G4 codes, G3 codes or keywords to quickly find values, keeping in mind that some companies report on the metric using different terms, e.g. G4-LA6 or LA6, worker fatalities or fatal accidents/incidents

  • Always check the metric question and methodology for the unit of measure or currency - researchers may need to carry out calculations or conversions before entering the final metric value

  • Add comments documenting exactly where within the source you found the information (page number) and include details of simple or complex calculations or conversions made to determine the metric value

  • If you are unable to locate a metric value in a source you can search for additional sources where the data is available and add a new source

Further guidance on how to research values for GRI-based metrics is available here, including detailed guidance on adding, editing and Checking metric values.

Global Reporting Initiative compliance guidance for companies:

To calculate the total number of work related fatalities for the total workforce (that is, total employees plus supervised workers) - G4-LA6-a:

  • Identify the absolute number of fatalities that occurred during the reporting period.

Reporting on this Indicator should include the following contextual information as a comment to the metric value:

  • G4-LA6-c: Report the system of rules applied in recording and reporting accident statistics.
