2020 Annual Incident Statistics Program Report Now Available

The Incident Statistics Program’s 2020 Report has recently been released with a re-envisioned design. While the large report tables have historically been used by HSE professionals to benchmark their safety efforts, they are also large report tables.

IADC has provided color-coordinated data tables, pie charts, and line graphs in an effort to facilitate interpretation and industry utilization.

About ISP Report

The Incident Statistics Program was a initially created to track safety and accident information across the drilling industry. To achieve this goal, it had a three-prong mandate:

  • To record data reflecting accident experience which can be compared to other industries.
  • To identify causes and trends of drilling industry injuries.
  • To provide a means of recognizing rig crews for outstanding safety performance.

History of ISP Reports

Since 1962, participation in the ISP has been voluntary and open to all Drilling Contractors. However, a company must participate in the IADC ISP Program and be a Member of IADC in order to qualify for rig/unit recognition.

The IADC Incident Statistics Program provides for the recognition of drilling rigs that achieve a one-year period without a lost-time incident or illness. The Incident Statistics Program also provides for recognition of drilling rigs that achieve the accomplishment of operation for a one-year period without a recordable incident or illness, with IADC ISP plaques available to order on an annual basis.

Show Your Company Success

Since its inception, companies within the drilling industry have wanted to demonstrate what separates them from their competition. The Incident Statistics Program reports provide a comprehensive view of how each company’s internal safety record compares industry-wide. That’s how the ISP plaques got started. Along with the 2020 ISP annual report, the ISP plaques have been redesigned as well.

Plaques can be ordered online (Request Form) or by telephone (1.713-292-1945).
