Abstract This project was undertaken with the purpose of obtaining accident statistics for offshore floating units on the United Kingdom Continental Shelf (UKCS). In this respect, four databases holding information about incidents having occurred on floating units on the UKCS were interrogated. Investigations revealed that none of them had a complete recording of such incidents. Consequently, the event frequencies being obtained varied with the availability of sources. There was no reason to believe that the situation for fixed installations should be any different. Hence, it was decided to carry out a study on the frequencies of accidents on fixed units, based on a critical review of the coding of incidents in the existing databases. This report consists of the results of this analysis.
