4 Absentee rate = (total number of missed hours due to accident5 and sickness ÷ total paid hours worked6) × 200,000
5 In AGRANA's workplace safety data, injuries are counted as accidents if a scheduled work day is lost. Days are counted from the first scheduled work day missed after the accident (excluding accidents on the way to or from work).
6 Total paid hours worked are defined by AGRANA as contractual work hours plus paid overtime.
8 A work day is assumed to have eight hours.
