Abstract In 1999, four databases holding information about United Kingdom Continental Shelf semi-submersible flooding incidents were interrogated. The survey revealed that none of them had a complete recording of such incidents. Consequently, the event frequencies being obtained varied with the availability of sources. Furthermore, it was identified that there were incidents which were not recorded in any of these sources. There was no reason to believe that the situation and figures for other types of events on floating units should be any different. Hence, it was decided to carry out a study on the frequencies of accidents on floating units, based on a critical review of the coding of incidents in the existing databases. This report consists of the results of this analysis.
