Corporate responsibility and safety performance

Health and safety - Own personnel and contractors lost time injury frequency rate 2

Health and safety performance, based on own personnel figures and contractors lost time injury frequency rate, improved to 0.8x in second quarter of 2012 (“2Q 2012”) as compared to 1.1x for the first quarter of 2012 (“1Q 2012”) and 1.5x for the second quarter of 2011 (“2Q 2011”), with significant improvements primarily in the Mining and Distribution Solutions segments. The performance of all other segments remained relatively constant quarter on quarter.

Health and safety performance, improved to 1.0x in first six months of 2012 (“1H 2012”) as compared to 1.4x for the first six months of 2011 (“1H 2011”), with significant improvements across all segments, especially in the Flat Carbon Americas, Mining and Distribution Solutions segments.

Despite this encouraging performance in lost time injury frequency rate, there is still more work to be done. In particular we have to focus on improving the safety performance of the contractors who work at our sites.
