Occupational Safety Analysis of Oil and Gas Industry Data



In this short article, one of our consultants Dr Alistair Apedaile reflects on the safety trends that have been observed within all of Juran Benchmarking’s Oil & Gas benchmarking programs in the last 3 years.

Occupational safety in the Oil & Gas industry is a highly important issue. Lapses in safety have led to incidents with loss of life within the sector, some of which were highly public events. We have started to notice changes in the reporting levels of occupational safety incidents with time. Why is occupational safety just as important as process safety?

The findings detailed in this report show good levels of reporting of injuries and near misses. However, Industry best practice also considers another safety category to more accurately measure industry reporting levels. Read the article to learn more.

Participating in the Juran Benchmarking program has enabled us able to justify our cost levels. The best thing about Benchmarking is that one gets a clear view of your own company’s performance. It is like looking into a mirror, it starts with yourself, allows you to understand the gaps in your performance compared to the other benchmarkers and enables you to learn from others best practices.
In this global economy where the change is constant, we need to explore and understand what’s happening in the surrounding marketplace for the continuation of our business. To do so, we benchmark ourselves among well-known companies through Juran Benchmarking.
