Report Incidents Corresponding Only to the People and Property Covered by Each Data Entry Form Each company‘s submission should cover all of its petroleum operations. All of the incidents that meet the criteria in this document should be included in the data submitted to API. In general, the criteria for classifying and reporting injuries, illnesses, and fatalities to API should be consistent with those prescribed by the Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA). If a company‘s submission covers only selected domestic subsidiaries of a parent corporation, then it should include the incidents and other required data only for those subsidiaries. For instance, on the ―Data Entry Form 1 – U.S. Operations: Company Employees‖ , the injuries reported should be those experienced by the employees included in the ―Average Number of Employees‖ column. The objective is to compare injuries and illnesses to the corresponding employees at risk.
Report Data Only for Petroleum Related Functions Many petroleum companies have operations or subsidiaries dealing with solar energy, coal, shale, or mineral mining or other fields that are not in the mainstream of petroleum industry operations. Data on these activities may confuse the picture of the petroleum industry fire and safety record and should not be reported. Report Employee Data for U.S. and Non-U.S. Operations Separately Companies can report employee data for their U.S. operations, non-U.S. operations and their subsidiaries. This applies to all information submitted (e.g. hours worked and number of employees). Report Contract Worker Data for U.S. and Non-U.S. Operations Separately Companies can report contract worker data for their U.S. operations, non-U.S. operations and their subsidiaries.
