Posted on 01 July 2010

The lost-time incident (LTI) rate for the global drilling industry reached a record low of 0.37 in 2009 – a 25% reduction from 2008. The global recordable incidence rate was reduced to 1.22, which is 33% better than the 2008 report of 1.82.

A total of 422.07 million manhours were reported around the world, during which a total of 744 LTIs and 2,581 recordable incidents were reported.

The number of fatalities stayed the same at 32, which yielded a fatality incidence rate of 0.015. Employees with one to five years of service with the company accounted for 12 fatalities, the largest percentage. Five victims had worked for the company between five to ten years; five had worked for the company 10 years or more.

“Struck By” and “Caught Between” together accounted for 64% of the 32 fatalities reported in 2009.
