Low rate of occupational accidents in ICM, in 2021

A study on the accident rate at ICM (Integral de Conexión y Montajes, S.L.), during 2021, reflects that there were only five accidents with sick leave, mostly produced in the workplace, that is, not in itinere (during the movement from home to work and/or vice versa).

It represents a very low accident rate not only in the company, but also if we take as a reference the figures provided by the National Institute of Safety and Health at Work (INSS), corresponding to the months between April 2021 and March 2022.

In Spain, during this period, there was a total of 515,802 accidents in the working day, according to the INSS; and a variation of 84,429 incidents compared to the same cycle of the previous year.

Specifically, in the industrial sector, in which we operate at ICM (Integral de Conexión y Montajes, S.L.) to develop our manufacturing solutions for manufacturers and systems integrators, the total incidence was 4,352. This represented a percentage variation of 12.4% and a fatal incidence rate of 5% (the same than the one in previous period, in the latter case). In addition, there were 99,147 occupational accidents, 115 deadly, 13,060 and 4 more than in the previous twelve months, respectively.

However, it should be noted that, in that same sector, the affiliated population (2,278,632) was 2.5% higher, a fact to be taken into account when analyzing the rest of the figures.

By Autonomous Community, the Balearic Islands had the highest number of occupational accidents, with a total incidence of 3,987, followed by Castilla La Mancha, La Rioja, Navarra and Cantabria, where they also exceeded three thousand. However, for example, in the Community of Madrid it stood at 2,167.

On the other hand, among the data provided by the INSS, it stands out that the highest percentage variation compared to 2021, occurred in Melilla (43.1%), and the lowest, in Aragón (4.8%). Likewise, it is worth mentioning the fact that there were a total of 619 fatal accidents, Andalusia being the community with the most (116) and Melilla with the least (1).
