IMPROVE SAFETY


As our top priority, we are committed to the safety of our customers and employees. Safety, including the security of data, are measured by the following key results:

REDUCE TOTAL CRASHES ON THE OHIO TURNPIKE IN 2020

- Use a five-year rolling average with a focus on the following types of crashes: construction zone crashes; serious injury and fatal crashes; and fixed object/sideswipe/rear-end crashes. 
The crash rate shown is the total number of crashes on the Ohio Turnpike mainline divided by the number of vehicle miles traveled. The quotient is then divided by 1,000,000 [One Million Vehicle Miles (MVM)]. The result is the crash rate per Million Vehicle Miles (MVM).

2020 data will be updated first/second quarter 2021.


CREATE AND LAUNCH A PLAN TO ENHANCE SAFETY AND SECURITY AT ALL OHIO TURNPIKE FACILITIES

- Articulate eight safety and security objectives by Dec. 31. 2020. 

MAINTAIN AVERAGE TRAFFIC INCIDENT RESPONSE TIME TO LESS THAN 20 MINUTES

 - Average incident response time as measured in minutes.
Incident Response Time is measured from the time a call is received in the Ohio Turnpike Communications Center until an incident responder arrives on the scene.

REDUCE INCIDENT RATIO FOR EMPLOYEES FROM 3.98 IN 2019 TO 3.75 IN 2020

Incident ratio is measured by the number of Public Employees Risk Reduction Program (PERRP) recordable injuries and illnesses and the number of Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) recordable injuries and illnesses multiplied by 200,000* divided by the total hours worked by all employees.
*Represents OSHA formula, which is based on 100 employees multiplied by 40 hour week multiplied by 50 weeks (52 weeks minus two weeks of vacation).

REDUCE LOST TIME INCIDENT RATE FOR EMPLOYEES FROM 1.46 IN 2019 TO 1.25 IN 2020

Lost Time incident rate is measured by the number of lost time cases x 200,000*/number of labor hours (YTD).
*Represents OSHA formula, which is based on 100 employees multiplied by 40 hour week multiplied by 50 weeks (52 weeks minus two weeks of vacation).

CONTINUE TO ENHANCE CYBERSECURITY

Implement technical controls, security centric tools, practices, continuous training and resources for employees; and communicating suspicious activity to better protect Ohio Turnpike and Infrastructure Commission people, processes, and information.
