Looking at onshore operations only, the global LTI rate was 0.28 and the recordable rate was 0.89. For offshore, those rates were 0.06 and 0.37, respectively.
The 2022 report encompasses data submitted by 76 contractors. Data is calculated based on incidents per 200,000 manhours.
Work is now ongoing to update the IADC ISP system, with the aim to provide a more modern system that will give participants more insight and direct access to reports. The new system is expected to be available this fall. DC
