Other HSE performance indicators
The number of employee TIFR-related injuries increased by 27%, and contractor TIFR-related injuries decreased by 7%. An analysis of current safety performance has highlighted that while the total number of reportable incidents has increased, the majority of FY20 TIFR injuries were of low/moderate severity. Key contributing factors to the injuries sustained included inadequate identification and control of hazards, mind on task/distraction issues and incorrect techniques and work methods used for routine tasks. Contractor performance has improved in FY20 due to an increased focus across our operations and the utilisation of the Contractor Management Framework, which includes the use of the Authority to Mobilise tool. The number of HSE Walks and Critical Control Checks completed exceeded the targets established for FY20, despite significant challenges faced by our employees and contractors on site due to the restrictions imposed by the summer fires and COVID-19 pandemic.

NR: Not reported
Critical Control Check - A Critical Control Check is a tool used by operational leaders to ensure critical controls are being implemented. Within these checks the Critical Controls have been divided into three categories; Plant, Process and People. Critical Control Checks replaced HSE Technical Interactions during FY19.
Environment Walk - An Environment Walk is a process which can be carried out by any employee, regardless of technical competency. It is used to document observations and conversations specific to the environment carried out in any setting. It can be focused on a particular task or work environment, but its focus can also be general in nature.
Health and Safety Walk - A Heath and Safety Walk is a process which can be carried out by any employee, regardless of technical competency. It is used to document observations and conversations specific to health and safety carried out in any setting. It can be focused on a particular task or work environment, but its focus can also be general in nature.
Health and Safety Hazard - A Health and Safety Hazard is any observation or workplace situation or source that has the potential to harm the health and safety of people or damage plant and equipment if not controlled.
Environment Hazard - An Environment Hazard is classified as any observation, task, process or equipment that has the potential to be a source of future environmental harm if left unattended.
Health and Safety Near Miss - A Health and Safety Near Miss is classified as an unplanned event or error that did not result in injury or illness but had the potential to do so.
Environment Near Miss - An Environment Near Miss is classified as any event where no actual regulatory breach or unauthorised environmental impact occurred but there was potential for a regulatory breach or unauthorised environmental impact to occur, i.e. the event was a close call and could result in an incident in the future unless improvement actions are implemented.
Recordable Incident - A Recordable Incident is a safety or environment incident that resulted in the injury or illness of a person requiring Lost Time or Medical Treatment, or an Environment Regulatory Reportable event.
HIgh Potential Near Miss - A High Potential Near Miss is an unplanned Event or error that did not result in injury, illness, equipment/property damage or fire but where the potential to do so is ranked high or above as per AGL’s FIRM matrix. This includes a high potential first aid, compliance breach of permits, critical controls and/or lifesaving rules.
High Potential Environment Near Miss - A High Potential Environment Near Miss is classified as any event where no actual regulatory breach or unauthorised environmental impact occurred but where the potential for this to occur is ranked high or above as per AGL’s FIRM framework.
Data excludes Southern Phone Company's 131 employees and Perth Energy's 48 employees who had not been fully integrated into AGL's human resource systems as at 30 June 2020.
