Regardless of where signs or symptoms surface. Restricted or Transfer Case (DART ) Injuries or illnesses should not be evaluated on the time spent seeking medical treatment . a case is recordable only if a work event or exposure is a discernable cause of the injury or illness or of a significant aggravation to a pre-existing condition. An injury or illness that is work-related and results in one of the following: • Fatality (FTL) • Lost time from work (LTI) (DAFWC) • Restricted work / transfer activity (RWTC) • Medical treatment other than first aid (MTO) • Days Away.

5. the case is not recordable. A person who sustains a work-related injury or illness requiring treatment that meets recordable incident criteria.1 Significant Incident: A significant diagnosed work-related injury or illness that is recordable under the general criteria even if it does not result in death. or undergoing evaluation. or medical treatment beyond first aid. days away from work. If an examination reveals that no medical treatment is required. and is terminated for drug use based on a post-incident drug test. the incident is recordable. and / or the case is not diagnosed as significant by the treating physician or licensed health care professional.

Lost Time Incident (LTI) .All injuries or illnesses are recordable. If not work related it shall be registered as case category “Non work related injury or illness”. Fatality Fatality is defined as a work-related injury or illness that results in death. Fatalities are included when calculating the Lost Time Incident (LTI or DAFWC) incidence rate and frequency rate.

A work-related incident (injury or illness) to an employee in which a physician or licensed health care professional recommends days away from work due to the incident. or otherwise seeking medical treatment should not be counted as a LTI when considering LTI classification. • Time spent travelling. undergoing evaluation. awaiting medical evaluation results. Medical Treatment Only (MTO) . Note: • Time away from work on the day of the incident is not considered in determining LTIs.

Medical treatment does not include first aid treatment (see First Aid) even though provided by a physician or registered professional personnel. b) Diagnostic procedures such as x-rays and blood tests. . Any work related injury or illness requiring medical care or treatment beyond first aid (regardless of the provider for such treatment) that does not result in a Restricted Work/Transfer Case (RWTC) or Lost Time Incident (LTI). For record keeping purposes Medical Treatment Only (MTO) does not include: a) Visits to a physician or other licensed health care professional solely for observation or consulting. including the administration of prescription medications used solely for diagnostic purposes (e.g. eye drops to dilate pupils) or c) Any treatment contained on the list of first-aid treatments.

4.1 Man-hours: Man-hours worked by all employees. or n) Drinking fluids for relief of heat stress. including personnel assigned to rig and those not assigned to the rig that provide support such as administrative. managerial and other support personnel at all levels of the organization.4. Onshore man-hours are not included. 5. 5.4 Other figures to report 5.2 Red incidents with personnel risk . clerical.m) Using massages (physical therapy or chiropractic treatment are considered medical treatment for record keeping purposes).

which potentially could have resulted in a serious personnel injury or fatality. 5. . Discharges are divided in three categories in means of their chemical composition.3 Environmental Discharges Unplanned discharges to sea. water. Category 1: All chemicals except for drilling fluids and PLONOR-chemicals*. air or ground which are not regulated by a discharge permit. Red incidents with personnel risk are misses and near misses in critical areas (ref. Archer risk matrix). In each category it is the volume discharged that decides the degree of seriousness according to Archer risk matrix.4.

5.4. Category 3: Water-based drilling fluids and chemicals regarded as non-harmful to environment. Category 2: Oils. oil-based.4 Incident related to lifting operation .and synthetic drilling fluids. Actual spill below the greatest lower limit according to Archer risk matrix to be reported as near miss in Synergi. *PLONOR list = OSPAR list of substances/preparations used and discharged offshore which are considered to pose little or no risk to the environment. like PLONOR-chemicals*.

Either is determined by the calculation below: Joule = Weight (kg) x Height (m) x gravity (9.4. When reporting a dropped object in Synergi. Incident related to lifting operation is an accident or near miss which potentially could have resulted in a lifting operation incident. record the weight of the object in kilogram(s) and the total fall height in meter(s) in the Case description field.5 Dropped object incident Dropped object is an incident where an object falls uncontrolled from one level to another. Under case categorization select either dropped object less than 40 J or dropped object more than 40 J. 5.81 m/s2) .

Dropped objects with kinetic energy < 20 Joule shall be registered as a condition in Synergi. Note: . Pointed and sharp objects have a higher potential for serious injury than blunt objects. not affect the kinetic energy. The general rule is that falling objects with kinetic energy (T) > 40 Joules may result in serious personal injury. but may be used in the determination of the potential in the incident. the shape of the object must be taken into account. however. This will.The drop height is measured to the actual/potential point of impact. In addition to the kinetic energy released.

heat stroke. heat stress.5 Rates .6 Occupational illness (work related disease) A work related illness is one that is determined by a physician or licensed health care professional to have resulted from exposure to factors related to the employee’s occupation and meets general recording criteria. • Dropped objects in the well are not included. For example: hydrogen sulphide poisoning. sun stroke.4. frostbite. exposure to workplace chemicals. heat exhaustion. etc. welder exposed to fumes created from heating galvanized material. 5. 5. • Dropped objects include all objects dropped both inside and outside barriers or red zone.

000 man-hours worked. which is incidents per 200. The two numbers are essentially the same.5. Rates can be calculated two ways: Frequency Rate.2 Proactive reporting frequency . 5.000 man-hours worked or Incidence Rate.000. which is incidents per 1.5.1 TRIF frequency rate H2 value (Total Recordable Injuries frequency rate) is defined as number of LTI’s and MTC’s including fatalities last 12 months x 200.000/Total Man hours worked last 12 months. except Frequency Rate is five (5) times the Incidence Rate. 5.

The work environment includes the establishment and other locations where one or more employees are working or are present as a condition of their employment. driving to the airport for a business trip: .A case is work-related anytime an event or exposure in the work environment is the discernable cause or contributes to an injury or illness or significantly aggravates a pre- existing injury or illness. Examples of company business include:  Driving an employee or client to the airport. b) Work relationship is presumed for crashes resulting from business being conducted on behalf of the company while operating a company assigned vehicle. Work-Related Vehicle Incidents a) Any crash involving a company. rental or personal vehicle while performing company business. Training that is required by the employer is a work related activity.

 Driving to a personal medical appointment. or driving to a business related appointment. c) Personal business which should not be counted includes.  A non-business meal with colleagues.  Commuting to and from home.  Deliveries. but is not limited to:  Running an personal errand. (including established home away from home) or.  Visiting clients or customers.  Taking a client or work colleague out for a business related meal. .  Getting a meal by yourself.

Case type HSE incident is split into three sub case types:  Unsafe condition. a condition which has the potential to develop into a near-miss or an accident  Near-miss. an incident which could lead to an accident or loss  Accident/loss. spill to the outer environment.Synergi case type HSE incident HSE incident is for reporting unwanted conditions or incidents. down time and other incidents with a direct economic loss. Synergi case type Improvement . an actual accident with consequences such as personnel injuries. damage to equipment.

routines. are always related to a specific requirement from authorities. clients and/or Archer. equipment. . operations etc. systems.Improvement is used for registration of proposals for improvements in internal procedures. Synergi case type Non-compliance Case type Non-compliance is divided into two sub case types:  Deviation  Nonconformity  Concession request Deviation: Deviation permit (No: Fravikstillatelse).

or an alternative solution assessed to be equally effective as stipulated by the requirements. Use Deviation permit request form. Deviations shall always be approved by the relevant personnel/authorities. which issued the requirement(s).g. clients or Archer based on certain conditions accept a less stringent solution. Nonconformity: Nonconformity means that something went wrong – a problem has occurred and needs to be addressed. the authorities. time period and type of product and for a specified use. . Non Conformances are addressed with immediate action. prior to start-up of the production of the product or process. corrective/preventive action. root cause.A deviation permit means that e. Deviation permits are approved for a limited quantity.

regulations or contract conditions  Etc.A Non-Conformance may be one of the following:  Lack of a procedures/instructions  Procedure not known/not adhered to  Lack of a system  Incomplete or inaccurate procedure or system  Equipment that does not conform to requirements  Failure on technical and/or administrative matters  Lack of compliance with laws. Concession request: . rules.

Client or Archer rules or regulations. Synergi case type Customer Complaint .A Nonconformity where Archer applies for exempt for use of equipment or procedures which are not in accordance with specifications or compliant with Authorities. the case can be escalated/stepped up by duplicating the case and change the case type to either a Nonconformity or HSE incident. Synergi case type Observation Observation is for registering observations which in the first place does not require any follow-up. The new case will then become superior to the Observation. If a follow-up is required.

Informal feedback will not be regarded as customer complaints. EMT: Customer Complaints is an expression of dissatisfaction from one of Archer's customers.NSR: Customer complaint is an expression of dissatisfaction from one of Archer’s customers. Customer complaint should be handed over in writing. Customer Complaint can take several forms:  handed over in writing either as a letter/e-mail of complaint or expression if dissatisfaction  when we fail to deliver the service ordered (service or product malfunction)  a service quality incident with significant downtime or request for credit exceeding contractual standard penalties for operational glitches .

. HSE and technically related notifications received from suppliers. Synergi case type Safety Alert The case type Safety Alert is used to publish and document the actions taken to safety. clients or other third party.  a service quality incident which require formal investigation with report back to customer  a severe HSE incident (category red) at customer location where our employee or our management system is at fault  unsatisfactory score on our post service customer satisfaction feedback form Informal feedback will not be regarded as customer complaints rather suggestion for improvements.

Safety Alerts and Technical Bulletins are published by Archer Experience Transfer User.Safety Alerts are divided into two case categories:  Technical / HSE Bulletin: Externally received recommendations to modifications or replacement of parts to improve the relevant equipment’s performance.  Safety Alert: Externally received bulletins which. Due to the severe potential of the Safety / HSE Alert response time will be set to 4 days. . if recommendations are not followed could lead to fatality. All other bulletins will have a 14 days response time. injury or damage to property. and matters that may represent a potential hazard.
