Safeopedia explains Recordable Frequency

Injury rates can be used to examine the rate of illness and injury in whole industries, or just in a workplace. They can help determine problem areas for safety, as well as progress that's been made in making a workplace safer and healthier. In order for an injury or illness to be considered "recordable," it must be work-related.
