Safety performance In 2008-09 there were 34 reportable accidents in the AMA. This is a marginal improvement on the previous year (35 accidents), but represents a 26% reduction over the last 3 years and continues an improving trend that goes back to 2001 when Glas Cymru acquired Welsh Water.

There has been an increase in non-reportable accidents with 384 incidents compared with 374 in 2007-08. This should, however, be viewed in the context of a workforce that was 10% larger than in 2007-08 and which, at its peak, was 4,950 sta. This is reected in the Accident Incident Rate (AIR - injuries per 100,000 employees), which shows a good improvement reducing to 700 for reportable accidents (2007-08: 791) and 7894 for non-reportable accidents (2007-08: 8452).

We benchmark our AIR performance against two other UK water sector delivery alliances, which in 2007-08 (latest available data) reported AIR’s for reportable accidents of 984 & 1009.

In 2008-09 the service partners who deliver Welsh Water’s capital investment programme achieved a best ever AIR of 229, which compares very favourably with the latest available construction industry average AIR for 2007-08 of 906. One Capital partner also passed a considerable milestone of ‘three million hours worked’ without a reportable accident.

We have seen a further, encouraging, increase in the number of ‘near hits’ reported in the AMA, which is up by 42% to 761. These are important ’learning events’ and form a key part of our process of continuous improvement.
