Footnotes

 

a This represents reported incidents occurring within BP’s operational HSSE reporting boundary. That boundary includes BP’s own operated facilities and certain other locations or situations.
b A fatality is any death of an employee or contractor as a result of a work-related incident.
c DAFWCF and RIF are the annual frequency per 200,000 hours worked.
d We report tier 1 process safety events, which are losses of primary containment of greatest consequence – causing harm to a member of the workforce, costly damage to equipment or exceeding defined quantities. Tier 2 events are those of lesser consequence.
e Loss of primary containment is an unplanned or uncontrolled release of oil, gas or other hazardous materials from a tank, vessel, pipe, truck, rail car or other equipment used for storage, separation, processing or transfer.
f Oil spills are defined as any liquid hydrocarbon release of more than, or equal to, one barrel (159 litres, equivalent to 42 US gallons).
