Occupational (OSHA) and Environmental Hazards/safe man-hour before an LTI


We have an accident last february26,2016, my manager told me to compute the safe-man hour before an LTI, do i include 26th day in my calculation or 25th day only? I do like this:1.) Safe man-hour = 395 no.of worker * 12 hr * 26  Or 2.) Safe man-hour = 395 no. of worker *12 *25,
Which formula is correct 1 or 2?

Hi Joey

Maths is not my strong point, but I would do the calculation like this:

395 * 12 * 25 = ? + hours before the accident on the 26th day

So if the accident happened at say 4 pm on the 26th Feb - then I would add the number 2765  which is 7 * 395 (assuming your shifts start at 8 am (8 am to 3 pm is 7 hours).  

You would need to add your number of hours depending on what time the accident happened.

So using my figures in your calculation and if the accident happened at 4pm, it would look like this:

395 * 12 * 25 = 118500 + 2765 = 121265 safe man hours before the last incident.

Thank goodness for calculators.

I hope that helps
