The Onshore Safety Alliance, a voluntary coalition committed to reducing serious injuries and fatalities (SIF) in U.S. onshore upstream, has released its annual report highlighting the industries progress in establishing a voluntary coalition of operators, drilling contractors, service companies and trade associations working together to advance safe operations. Energy Workforce is one of the charter trade association members of the Alliance.
The report focuses on companies that reported SIF data and Well Control Incident (WCI) data for 2021. The report also reflects OSA’s commitment to open communication and transparency of safety information and to building collaboration between the industry, regulators and the public.
Currently 29 companies participate in the OSA program, employing over 350,000 oil and gas workers collectively and representing companies ranging from five to more than 70,000 employees. Together, these companies are raising the bar on safety – bridging industry knowledge, advancing a culture of safety and reducing serious incidents.
The OSA program is open to all companies engaged in onshore natural gas and oil exploration and production operations. Companies do not have to be a member of a trade association to join and there is zero cost to participate. Furthermore, the program is customizable to unique business values and needs, and any individual safety data submissions will not be published and will only be used to assess collective performance results.
