Time after Time

Just outside Moab, Utah is some sort of government complex. It's low to the ground, alarmingly dusty, and boasts, in addition to an incomprehensible nameplate, the following sign:

This site has worked 7,120 days without a lost time accident

I do not know what lost time accidents are, but I have a feeling there ought to be commercial products to prevent such things. And I should be using them.

Lost time accidents are accidents that result in anyone missing any work because of them. But it would be better if it were lost time in the sci-fi sense of not being able to account for hours of your life because of aliens or something.
