Description / Abstract:


The Survey of Occupational Injuries, Illnesses and Fatalities in the Petroleum Industry (OII) is conducted annually. Participation is voluntary and the number of participating companies varies from year to year. Therefore, the reader should exercise caution when using this data to characterize the performance of the industry as a whole.

Participants are asked to submit data according to the Bureau of Labor Statistics (BLS) guidelines. Therefore, this report provides incidence rates per 200,000 hours worked on the same basis as those reported by BLS.

Historical Background

API has been collecting data regarding workplace injuries, illnesses and fatalities in The Survey of Occupational Injuries, Illnesses and Fatalities in the Petroleum Industry (OII) since 1931. Prior to the 1999 survey, companies submitted employee data for their U.S. operations only. In 2000, API expanded the scope of the OII and began collecting employee and contract worker data for operations both inside and outside of the United States.

A second change introduced in 2000 gave participants the ability to submit their data electronically over the Internet using The Occupational Injuries, Illnesses and Fatalities Reporting System at http://oii.api.org/. Features of this online database include automatic data checks, online instructions, and report generation. In addition, companies willing to share their data have the ability to produce customized benchmarking reports.

While conducting the 2001 survey, API learned that a number of companies no longer track certain data. Consequently, it was decided to make those data fields optional in the 2002 survey. These optional data fields are The Average Number of Employees, Job Transfer or Restriction, All Injury Cases, and All Illness Cases.

Current System

In 2010, the Occupational Injuries, Illnesses, and Fatalities Reporting System was redesigned. The data entry forms are more user-friendly and the reporting features now give participants the capability to:

  • Create customized company specific ad-hoc reports for benchmarking,

  • Create trending reports that include graphs,

  • Create, edit, and save report templates, and

  • Export reports in the following formats: Excel, Word, CSV, PDF, XML, MHTML, or TIFF.
