Downstream oil industry safety statistics

01 Oct 2002

CONCAWE has now been collecting data on the safety performance of the downstream oil industry in Europe for eight years. A complete report for the year 2000 will be published shortly. For that period returns were received from all CONCAWE Member Companies who operate refineries which together represent more than 90% of the oil refining capacity in Europe. Figure 1 summarizes the survey results for all years in terms of four indicators: Fatal Accident Rate (FAR)1; Lost Workday Injury Frequency (LWIF)2; All Incident Frequency (AIF)3; and Road Accident Rate (RAR)4. The statistics include own employees as well as contractors.
