"Trends in risk level"
The "Trends in risk level" (RNNP) was initiated in 1999/2000 to develop and apply a measurement tool to show the development in risk levels in the petroleum sector. The project focuses on personal risk, and comprises major accidents, work accidents and selected working environment factors and is based in part on data from 21 defined hazard and accident situations (DFUs). Qualitative indicators are also used to describe the development in risk levels.
Annual reports are published from this project. The summary report is available both in hard copy and digitally, while the main report and other appendices are only published on our website. Results are normally presented in the last half of April each year.
