In 2013 Yara achieved a TRI rate of 4.3 for employees and contractors combined, down from 5.0 in 2012 but still not reaching the target of a TRI at 3.5 or lower. The TRI rate includes fatalities, lost-time injuries, restricted work cases where employees and contractors were allowed to carry out work different from their normal duties, and medical treatment cases. The LTI rate for Yara employees and contractors ended at 2.0, clearly decreasing from 2012 (2.9). The company’s accident rate remains better than the average for European fertilizer producers.

In 2013, all Yara employees had the opportunity to take part in the Talent Development and Performance Management processes, most of them using the HR Information System (HRIS) as the main tool.

In order to ensure relevant development opportunities, Yara launched YaraLearning, a platform for learning activities that is available for all employees and that aims to equip Yara employees with

the skills and competencies they need to be successful in their jobs.
