This metric is based on the Global Reporting Initiative (GRI) G4 Guidelines. It covers the reporting requirements of Indicator G4-LA7 – ‘Workers with high incidence or high risk of diseases related to their occupation’.

As part of a preventative strategy for managing the health and safety of its workforce, this Indicator is relevant for all organizations. It has specific relevance for organizations working in countries with a high risk or incidence of communicable diseases, and those in professions that have a high incidence of specific diseases. Preventing serious diseases contributes to the health, satisfaction, and stability of the workforce, and helps maintain the organization’s social license to operate in a community or region.
