Are they high/low, good/bad?
Very subjective. Refer to the "Explanation 1
Is it I will need to have the next coming year data to compare in order to know whether are there any improvement / getting worst?
Yes, this is what we called "individual performance benchmarking
" over a defined period of time. In this case, it is a yearly performance statistical benchmarking, since the calculation used here is a "yearly-based" formula. Again, I repeat, this is to measure your own organization performance trending
, any positive trending or negative, from statistical point of view, which is not for any comparison purposes with any other similar business capacity or disciplines.
For your info, the company I'm working in is a local (SMI) food flavour manufacturer.
Therefore I don't think so I can find other similar industry to compare with as this business is quite a niche market and most of the players are located overseas.
This will be done if you wish to benchmark your organization’s performance with any other similar business size, capacity or disciplines
. Theoretically, yes, you can’t find your "competitor" here in this country. But practically, it doesn’t necessary have to be "food flavour manufacturer", dude. You may benchmark with any other food manufacturer which having the same process as yours, and if possible which having the similar number of workers as yours. If possible
, which is not compulsory
. Refer to the "Explanation 2
" below.Explanation 1:
The only party who can respond to your question on whether your performance is good or bad based from your calculated ratings using NADOOPOD’s formula is DOSH
. Why? I’m sure they have done all the necessary "ratings" compilation
for all business thread respectively, all organizational size respectively, etc. which will help them to come out with the "Mean
" and "Range
" from the overall statistics given by you guys before end of January each year
. Based from these findings, you may figure where your company stands among the similar business and size organizations as yours in Malaysia. Please don’t ask me how to get the data, I don’t know either, this is just from my own logic thinking, on "why you guys need to submit those data to them
". That is why (if you noticed) there are 3 business-size categories
indicated in the referred forms, i.e. B (25 Million and >151 workers), M (10-25 Million and 51-150 workers), and S (<10 Million and <50 workers). Remember, this is just my own logic thinking
. Please refer to the nearest DOSH's office...hehe!!
Tips: Consider the same problem below, but I change the no of personnel from 62 to 620
Working day - Mon till Fri
Working hour - 8.30am to 12.30am, 1.30pm to 5.30pm
Total no. of staffs - 620 pax
Total No of accident recorded/yr - 10
Total Workdays Lost/yr – 11
Total Man Hours Worked = 620 pax X 8 hrs X 20 days X 12 months
= No. of accidents (10)/Annual average of No. employees (620) X 1000
= No. of accidents (10)/ Total man-hours worked (1,190,400) X 1,000,000
Frequency Rate - Poisonous/Occupational Disease
= Total workdays lost (11) / Total man-hours worked (1,190,400) X 1,000,000
= 9.24Do you think it’s fair to your organization in doing such benchmarking?Explanation 2:
If you want to benchmark among the similar business with your own sourced data (especially multinational organization), please consider:
1. The multipliers
- "exposure hours
". Ensure consistency in the multipliers used. Some organization ratings are based on an exposure of 200,000 hours, especially in the US. In the UK pulak, organisations typically use 100,000 (ILO pun pakai nih) whilst DOSH required ours to be on an exposure of 1,000,000 hours.
2. The "workdays
" thingy. Some organization will count the workdays thingy such as lost workdays, restricted workdays, etc on a calendar day basis
(including weekends and public holidays) whereas some organization counts on a working day basis
only. NADOOPOD will counts on a working day basis similarly with OSHA (US) system and the American National Standard ANSI Z16.5-1998. Our major Oil and Gas player, Petronas, in the other hand, will calculate the Lost Workdays and Restricted Workdays on a calendar day basis, according to their PTS Manual.
3. The "exposure hours per day
". Most of the time, even in our NADOOPOD, the exposure hours per day is based on 8 hours per day
. But don’t be surprised, some 24 hours operated organization uses a 24 hours exposure time per day
. For example, Armada Hess Limited, for their offshore personnel. I’m not talking about Bumi Armada or Carigali-Hess (CHOC) whatsoever. Some organization pula will include the exposure hours with the "scheduled" overtime
macam Shell & Petronas.
4. The "number of persons employed
" for manhours calculation – MAY
or MAY NOT
include part time workers, contractors, temporary workers, indon or bangla yg buat partime, etc.
Hopefully these “blurb” answering to your question, Sir.
