In 2015 the TRIR improved by 28.8% and the LTIR improved by an impressive 73.3%. The LTIR improvement was the result of immediate case management and safety procedure improvements that resulted in only 2 incidents being recorded as lost time resulting in only 89 lost work days.
Most importantly Core Laboratories recorded another year without a fatality or incident resulting in hospitalization. The number one goal of Core Laboratories is to prevent all incidents, but especially those with significant impact to the environment, our employees and their families.

Core Lab will establish goals and target based on 3 year averages. It is our view that sustainability of the safety program must be measured over larger periods of time and that high safety cultures display solid downward performance.
The Graph below shows the Core Laboratory trend and the trend has been good – especially LTIR. Core Lab firmly believes trending of 3 year averages best shows the sustainability of the safety program over time by removing the short term peaks and valleys. This provides a more stable and measurable TRIR or LTIR, avoiding safety expectations on performance based on just one good or bad year. Core Lab Company goals must be set with the expectation of driving down three year averages. The objective is to set realistic, achievable goals based on the clients preferred contractor evaluation measurement.
