Long-term targetIn 2020, the corporate lost-time injury frequency rate (LTIF) was 2.03. This was slightly above the annual target of 1.60, but nevertheless represents a 10% improvement compared to 2019 (2.25). 2020 was an exceptional year and our highest priority was to protect our employees against COVID-19. Wärtsilä established global and local crisis management teams to prepare and implement pandemic prevention actions and control plans. Our organisation also continued applying traditional protective safety measures. As a highlight, the number of management safety walks, which were mostly carried out virtually, increased by 4%, and near miss/hazard reporting by 20% compared to 2019.
