G+ 2022 Incident Data Report is out
It shows a 10% increase in high potential incidents in 2022, but it’s not all bad news
According to the latest G+ Global Offshore Wind Health and Safety Organisation 2022 Incident Data report, which was published recently, a total of 225 high potential incidents were reported in 2022, which is a 10% increase on 2021 levels.
There was also an increase in the number of restricted workday injuries in 2022, with 36 reported cases, and the number of medical treatment injuries increased by 10 cases – all highlighting the need for constant vigilance and continuous improvement to improve safety.
However, the report also highlights that despite being a record year for offshore wind activity, with over 44.6 million hours worked at G+ member sites across Europe, North America and Asia Pacific, several critical safety metrics (such as TRIR and LTIF) pointed to an improvement despite the increased hours worked.
