The safety statistics for the second quarter of 2021 indicate a stable trend in serious incidents, but the number of personal injuries in #equinor has had a negative development. There was also one hydrocarbon leak in this period.
“We take it seriously that the number of personal injuries is developing in the wrong direction. Nobody must be injured while working for us. In addition, we do not see any improvement in the number of serious incidents. Consequently, we keep focusing on major accidents while working towards turning the personal injury development,” says Jannicke Nilsson, executive vice president for Safety, Security and Sustainability (SSU).
The twelve-month average serious incident frequency, SIF (number of serious incidents per million hours worked), is 0.5 at the end of June, the same level that we saw at the end of 2020. SIF includes both incidents with an actual serious consequence (injury) and incidents with a serious potential. Nine serious incidents were recorded in the second quarter this year, compared to 12 serious incidents in the same period in 2020.
The twelve-month average total recordable incident frequency, TRIF (number of personal injuries with medical treatment per million hours worked) is 2.5, compared to 2.3 at the end of 2020. A total of 90 injuries have been recorded in the second quarter, compared to 53 injuries in the second quarter of 2020.
The SIF and TRIF figures are based on 32.9 million working hours in the second quarter of 2021, compared to 29.6 million working hours in the second quarter of 2020.
Four hydrocarbon leaks (oil and #gas leaks with a leak rate exceeding 0.1kg/second) have been recorded so far this year. One #gas leak has been recorded in the second quarter, and no serious well incidents.
