Equinor’s second quarter 2022 safety results
The second quarter 2022 safety results show that the serious incident frequency remains at the same level as in the first quarter, while the frequency for personal injuries went up. There were no incidents with major accident potential in the second quarter.
At the end of the second quarter the serious incident frequency (SIF) was 0.5. Most of the incidents are related to dropped objects.
The total recordable injury frequency (TRIF) during the past 12 months was 2.5, up from 2.4 in the first quarter. The number of serious injuries is also included in the serious incident frequency.
“We have not succeeded in bending the curve when it comes to injuries. It is not enough to learn from each individual incident, we must also intensify the work we do every day to strengthen a proactive safety culture,” says Jannicke Nilsson, executive vice president Safety, Security and Sustainability.
Ten oil and gas leaks have been recorded during the past 12 months.
“We are actively strengthening our capacity and fortifying our safety work. This has contributed to a reduction in pending safety critical maintenance and an increase in proactive reporting of possible weaknesses,” says Nilsson.
Through the alwayssafe.no annual wheel, Equinor is cooperating with other operator companies and external suppliers. In the third quarter, the focus is to enhance awareness of how to prevent incidents involving dropped objects and situations in the “line of fire”*. The annual wheel and the learning packages help repeat and strengthen the safety work.
Footnote: In the second quarter results, serious work-related injuries/illness (WRI) have been excluded from the SIF results. WRI will be followed up as a separate parameter by the company’s business areas. Two serious WRIs were reported during the past 12 months.
