Offshore Accident Information

      11/22/1999

Every conceivable aspect of offshore accidents since 1970 is covered in the statistical report now published by Det Norske Veritas (DNV). The report documents some 3,200 accidents to mobile and fixed units worldwide, and serves as an at-a-glance reference tool for persons engaged in offshore safety and reliability work.

The Worldwide Offshore Accident Databank – WOAD – is the world's most extensive and publicly available databank on offshore accidents. It represents the best source of its kind available for risk and safety assessment and emergency planning in the offshore industry. It is continuously being updated with the latest worldwide information available from authorities, official publications and reports, newspapers, databases, rig owners, and operators.

Safety of offshore units is of considerable concern to all parties involved. Experience from accidents, related to causes, consequences, mitigation measures taken and lessons learned, is vital in the work of avoiding accidents in the future. It serves as important input to hazard identification, consequence evaluations, trend analyses, and as decision support. Studies and applications of accident statistics are mandatory when improving offshore safety and documenting risk levels.
