Report No. 2012s (June 2013)



The International Association of Oil and Gas Producers (OGP) has been collecting safety data on a voluntary basis from its member companies globally since 1985. It is the largest database of safety performance in the exploration and production (E&P) industry and includes the employees
of member company and their contractors for both onshore and offshore operations. The annual reports provide trend analysis and benchmarking and identify areas and activities that can improve performance.


The 2012 OGP safety performance indicators show that the fatal accident rate for reporting companies in 2012 is 2.38, a 27% increase compared with 2011. The number of fatalities has increased from 65 in 2011 to 88 in 2012. The 52 separate incidents that caused fatalities include one incident in which 31 people lost their lives. Analysis of the fatal incident descriptions has shown that following the OGP Life Saving Rules (see OGP report 459) may have helped to prevent 79% of the fatal incidents reported in 2012. Forty work force fatalities were identified as being related to process safety events (39 fatalities were related to six separate process safety events). There are a number of common causal factors related to the fatal incidents and high potential events from 2010 to 2012. The top six causal factors each year were: Inadequate hazard identification or risk assessment Inadequate supervision Inadequate work standards/procedures Improper decision making or lack of judgment Unintentional violation (by individual or group) Inadequate training/competence. Personal injury performance shows that the lost time injury frequency (the number of fatalities and lost work day cases per million work hours) has increased by 12% to 0.48 in 2012, and represents an additional 307 lost time injuries. Participating companies reported 53,325 days of lost work through injuries. The total recordable injury rate (the number of fatalities, lost work day cases, restricted work day cases and medical treatment cases per million work hours) was 1.74 in 2012, virtually unchanged compared with 2011 results.
