Performance Data

We want to be transparent about how we are tracking on our sustainability commitments. We rely on year-over-year data to help measure our performance. We report this data using the internationally recognized Global Reporting Initiative (GRI) reporting framework.

The data points reported are ones that are critical to our business and important to our stakeholders. For more information about how we manage each of these areas, read our management approaches. All data tables can be downloaded here.

    Employee Blood-Lead Average

    The adjusted Occupational Health and Safety Administration’s (OSHA) standard for medical reassignment of an employee is 53 micrograms of lead per deciliter of whole blood (“μg/dL”).(1) Doe Run sets its maximum limit at 30 μg/dL. If any employee has a blood-lead average that reaches 30 μg/dL, they are temporarily reassigned to other work.

    2. 2019 data represents only mandated testing, due to a change in providers.
    3. Glover is included in the Metals Division for blood-lead data only due to the nature of their work.
    4. Employees at corporate headquarters are not required to be tested.
    5. Due to an analytical testing issue at an outside lab, FPI blood-lead data is reported as of July 31, 2018. All other 2018 blood-lead data is representative of the full calendar year.
