Improving our accident results

At Repsol we demand a high level of safety in all our operations. During 2011 our Lost Time Injury Frequency Rate (LTIF) decreased by over 20% compared to the previous year.

Lost Time Injury Frequency Rate (LTIF) decreased by more than 60% since 2006

Our Lost Time Injury Frequency Rate (employee and contractor) decreased by over 20% compared to the previous year, meeting our annual target. Our goal is to achieve zero accidents in our activities. In the past five years we have reduced our LTIF by more than 60%. However, during 2011, we regret four fatal accidents involving contractors during work-related activities. Traffic accidents in Peru during LPG (Liquefied Petroleum Gas) logistics operations caused two of the deaths, and the remaining two occurred in Argentina, one during pipeline maintenance operations and the other during site assembly operations.

As a result of the fatal accidents in Peru, we took specific actions related to assessing existing customer route risks and establishing marketing criteria based on these route risk assessments. Additionally, enhanced the transport safety plan of the company in numerous ways, such as advanced training activities for drivers, awareness campaigns, working with suppliers and increasing follow-up and control.

Meanwhile, our Total Integrated Injury Frequency Rate (employee and contractor), which includes accidents with and without lost time, has continued the same downward trend as the Integrated Frequency Index, dropping 15% compared to 2010.

In these indicators we have included safety data for 100% of the staff of subsidiaries in which Repsol holds a majority interest and/or has operating liability (control).
