Abstract This report includes safety statistics for the year 1998 concerning the refining and distribution activities notified by 27 companies, which account for 90% of European refining capacity. Overall, the reported hours worked by company employees and contractors were approximately 470 million. The average Lost Workday Injury Frequency (LWIF) was 4.5, similar to those of previous years which ranged from 4.0 to 4.7. Statistics are also provided for injury severity, injury frequency, road accidents and fatalities. Despite the intrinsic hazards of the materials and the operations carried out, the level of accidents is low when compared to other industries in Europe.
