 COVID-19 Response for Saskatoon Residents

On March 19, 2020, the City decided to close public access to City Hall and all City buildings, including fire stations, leisure facilities, attractions and Saskatoon Public Library locations. While we are closed to the public, our business operations continue to ensure core services for our residents as much as possible. Public transit currently remains operational.

Lost Time Injury Frequency

“Zero lost time incidents” measures our success in making health and safety a top priority. The target is to eliminate incidents and causes of injuries which result in lost time from work. Lost Time Injury Frequency (LTIF) is calculated by multiplying the number of incidents that resulted in lost time by 200,000 (100 employees working full-time) then dividing that by the number of total employee labour hours.  

How are we doing?

Lost work time due to injuries relative to the number of hours employees worked has been relatively consistent over the past four years.  However, an increase did occur in 2018 with numbers going from 2.28 to 3.26.

Description

"Lost Time Injury Frequency" (LTIF) measures our success in making health and safety a top priority under our goal for "Continuous Improvement." The target is to eliminate incidents and causes of injuries which result in lost time from work.

LTIF =     Number of lost time injuries x 200,000    
             Number of employee labour hours worked

Note: 200,000 is the base for 100 full-time equivalent workers (working 40 hours per week, 50 weeks per year)
