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 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.
