    Data collection period: From January 1 to December 31 each year
    (For 2019, NEC Corporation data is for the period April 1, 2019 to March 31, 2020.)

    1) Frequency rate
    Lost time injury frequency rate = (number of lost time injuries / total number of work hours) × 1,000,000

    2) Severity rate
    Labour accident and disaster severity rate = (number of lost work days / total number of work hours) × 1,000
    Number of lost work days: In the case of death or serious injury = 7,500 days. In the case of temporary disability = the number of calendar days taken off work multiplied by 300/365
