LTIFR (Lost-Time Injuries Frequency Rate) is an accident index that differs from occupational accident rate and Frequency Rate of Injury (FR) and includes not only industrial accidents, but also all labor losses of more than one day.
2) OIFR: Occupational Injuries Frequency Rate (Number of occupational illness cases x1,000,000)/(Total hours worked in accounting period)
LG Electronics has employees who work in special conditions or who work with special materials undergo a special medical checkup on an annual basis. The results indicate that none of our employees contracted occupational diseases for the period between 2017-2019.
* Applicable employees: All employees home and abroad including those in overseas production subsidiaries of LG Electronics.
* For LTIFR and OIFR, calculation is based on average figures for Korean and overseas employees
