DNV GL: The Worldwide Offshore Accident Databank (WOAD)

The Worldwide Offshore Accident Databank (WOAD) is a repository of information on accidents occurring in the offshore oil and gas industry. The initiative to start collecting this information began in the mid-1970s. Information on lessons learned serves as invaluable input to help industry understand and avoid accidents in the future.

There are 2,288 fatalities currently recorded in WOAD among the recorded 6451 accidents. This is a sobering thought and the driver for continuing with this worthwhile collection, which is something that has become much more than “data”.
