The number of injuries per 100 employees per year. Calculated as the total injuries multiplied by 200,000, divided by total hours worked. The factor 200,000 is the annual hours worked by 100 employees, based on 40 hours per week for 50 weeks a year.
One pathway where radiative forcing peaks at approximately 3 W m–2 before 2100 and then declines, the corresponding Extended Concentration Pathway assuming constant emissions after 2100.
Two intermediate stabilisation pathways in which radiative forcing is stabilised at approximately 4.5 W m–2 and 6.0 W m–2 after 2100, the corresponding Extended Concentration Pathways assuming constant concentrations after 2150.
One high pathway for which radiative forcing reaches greater than 8.5 W m–2 by 2100 and continues to rise for some amount of time, the corresponding Extended Concentration Pathway assuming constant emissions after 2100 and constant concentrations after 2250.
Scenarios that include time series of emissions and concentrations of greenhouse gases, aerosols and chemically active gases.
