Minor injuries, such as first aids, are not included in AIFR or LTIFR. We have guidelines and standards in place for reporting all incidents. They provide guidance for when and to whom an incident needs to be reported, and for determining the severity of the injury. These guidelines and standards are available on our intranet system and are consistent with ICMM member companies.
