V. Worksite Hazards

The hazards at the site include, but are not limited to <state hazards>. The site <does or does not> use chemicals considered to be highly hazardous and in sufficient quantity to place the site under the Process Safety Management (PSM) Standard.

VI. Injury and Illness Rates

The three-year Total Case Incidence Rate (TCIR) and Days Away/Restricted/Transferred Case Incidence (DART) rate for the period <20XX-20XX> are <XX> and <XX>, respectively. The site TCIR is <XX%> <above/below>, and the DART rate is <XX%> <above/below> the 20XX Bureau of Labor Statistics (BLS) industry average for NAICS code <XXXXXX> for 20XX.

Team leader must verify that a comparison has been conducted against the site's injury and illness rates reviewed during the evaluation and the site's injury and illness rates reported in its annual self- evaluation.
