Key Performance Indicators to criteria 14 to 16

Key Performance Indicator G4-LA6
Type of injury and rates of injury, occupational diseases, lost days and absenteeism, and total number of work-related fatalities, by region and by gender.

In 2013, there was one commuting accident; no other accidents in 2012/2013. The absentee rate due to illness, for the first time determined in the last report, is constantly hovering around 3 percent. In 2012, it was at 2.7 percent, and in 2013 at 3.3 percent.

Key Performance Indicator G4-LA8
Health and safety topics covered in formal agreements with trade unions.

The Fraunhofer-Gesellschaft applies the collective bargaining agreement for civil service employees (TVöD - Tarifvertrag des Öffentlichen Dienstes) that does not contain statements concerning this matter. The participatory rights of the employees are subject to, among others, the German Occupational Health and Safety Act as well as the Works Constitution Act, which renders further agreements between individual staff members and the labor unions obsolete.

Regulations concerning personal protective equipment can be found, among others, within the trade association regulations; labor unions are represented in the self-administration of the trade associations.
