||Oct. 2000, Vol.9, No.2, p.24. Illus.
||Oil industry safety statistics over 1993 to 1999 show an improvement in safety performance. The number of lost workdays per 1 million hours worked (4.3) is slightly lower than those recorded for the last four years and the average number of lost days per incidents (severity) has been steadily decreasing. The road accident rate has also improved over the years. The most notable feature of the 1999 statistics is the fatal accident rate which is the lowest ever recorded (1.8), which indicates that oil industry has developed procedures to reduce the risks from flammability and explosions hazards to a low level.
