This metric is based on the Global Reporting Initiative (GRI) Standard Guidelines.
GRI 403 addresses the topic of occupational health and safety. Healthy and safe work conditions are recognized as a human right and addressed in authoritative intergovernmental instruments, including those of the International Labour Organization (ILO), the Organisation for Economic Co-operation and Development (OECD), and the World Health Organization (WHO).
Healthy and safe work conditions involve both prevention of physical and mental harm, and promotion of workers’ health.
Work-related ill health can include acute, recurring, and chronic health problems caused or aggravated by work conditions or practices. They include musculoskeletal disorders, skin and respiratory diseases, malignant cancers, diseases caused by physical agents (e.g., noise-induced hearing loss, vibration-caused diseases), and mental illnesses (e.g., anxiety, post-traumatic stress disorder).
For this metric question you are being asked to identify total number of fatalities resulting from work-related ill health that occurred in an organization for a specific year. Start by searching publicly available documents like Annual and CSR reports.
