English term or phrase: number of lost hours
As far as the balance of numbers we can say with absolute confidence that the improvement has been considerable:

number of lost hours reduced - > 5000 hours = 37% with respect to the previous year

31 accidents less than last year = 32% less than in the 2006.

The reduction of absenteeism due to sickness - by more than 15000 hours, =15% with respect to year 2006.
