Fatality Free Shifts ("FFS") and Fatality Free Production Shifts ("FFPS") are two different measures used to calculate an operation's fatality-free safety record. FFS is calculated by multiplying the number of shifts worked with the number of people who worked the shifts, whereas FFPS does not account for the number of people on shift, but only for the actual shifts worked. For this reason, smaller operations prefer to use FFPS, as it would take them many years to reach an equivalent million FFS.2.
