Incident data gathering, and sharing, has become an important asset that guides the offshore wind industry’s health and safety workstreams, helping to develop industry wide standards and guidance. Developing incident data reporting protocols/standards for SafetyOn from its early beginnings will smooth the process of analysing industry wide incidents and guide onshore wind H&S workstreams.
The main objective of this workstream is to help SafetyOn members to collect and submit incident data within the onshore wind operations in a unified format, which will produce a cohesive SafetyOn database. These guidelines will feed on the expertise developed by SafetyOn for the coming years as well as consider the diversity of current member companies.
SafetyOn member companies submit incident data and the number of worked hours based on the agreed data reporting template. The template is updated based on experience and information gathered year after year to reflect identified reporting and incident issues.
