API Publ 2378-2000 pdf free download.Occupational Injuries, Illnesses, and Fatalities Summary Report: Aggregate Data Only.
The American Petroleum Institute (API) has published this report since 193 1. It includes information regarding workplace injuries, illnesses, fatalities, lost workday cases, and incidence rates by industry segment and functions. Prior to this year’s survey, companies were only asked to submit data about their own employees in their US. operations. To increase the value of this report, the scope was expanded to include non-U.S. operations. Additionally, data was collected for four new functions: Upstream Support Service, LubricantslSpecialties, Downstream Support Services, and Power Generation and two new incident rates: Days Away plus Restricted Activiv Cases and Days Away Cases. Another major change introduced was the ability for companies to submit their data electronically over the Internet. Some of the features of this online database include automatic data checks, online instructions, and reports. It also provides companies that are willing to share their data with the ability to produce customized reports allowing them to benchmark against their peers. Participation in the API annual survey is voluntary and company participation varies from year to year. Therefore, exercise caution when using this data to characterize the performance of the industry as a whole. However, eighty companies that responded to this year’s survey with U.S. operations data also responded to last year’s survey. These eighty companies represent ninety percent of the total number of employees and eighty-nine percent of the total number of hours repofted to API for 1999. Participants were asked to submit data according to the Bureau of Labor Statistics (BLS) Recordkeeping Guidelines for Occupational Injuries and Illnesses, September 1986 edition. Therefore, this report provides incidence rates per 200,000 hours worked on the same basis as those reported by BLS.
Significant differences exist among companies regarding return-to-work policies and practices. Therefore, use of the Fatal plus Days Away Incidence Rates alone to judge and compare company safety performance is not recommended. The Bureau of Labor Statistics (BLS) publishes employment figures for different sectors of the petroleum industry. The table below shows the number of full-time employees in the U.S. company information section of this report and the comparative total employment figures published by BLS. These figures can be used to calculate the API survey representation rate. The API U.S. company information is limited to company employees only while the BLS has a more inclusive definition of employment (the BLS includes contract workers). Therefore, use caution when interpreting these representation rates.
Non-U.S. Operations: Company Employees Thirteen oil and gas companies reported data about their non-U.S. operations. During 1999, these companies employed 57,844 employees with a total work experience of 124 million hours. In 1999, the Total OSHA Recordable Case Incidence Rate reported was .54 for non-U.S. operations. This rate is the number of total recordable cases per 200,000 hours worked or approximately the number of cases per 1 O0 full-time workers per year. The Fatal Plus Days Away Incidence Rate reported for 1999 was .16 per 200,000 hours worked-r one case for every 625 employees. Trends The total OSHA recordable incidence rate as reported to API has declined by more than half over the past ten years. The following graphs show the ten-year trend for selected U.S. petroleum industry sectors.
