Abstract This report presents data on safety performance and accidents for 2004 in the European downstream oil industry. It includes trends from 1993 and some comparative figures for other industry sectors. Overall, the 2004 performance appears slightly improved compared to previous years and there is a low level of accidents compared to other industries in Europe. The fatal accident rate has, however, been steadily increasing in recent years, road accidents accounting for nearly 50% of all fatalities.
