IADC continuously works to improve industry health, safety, and environmental protection for the drilling industry.

Since the 1960’s when IADC first provided incident data, the worldwide incident and fatality rates, both, have fallen. And that is due almost entirely to the every-single-day commitment of drilling contractors to find solutions and technologies that make drilling for the world’s energy resources safer.
