We work for an incident and injury free industry, focusing on major incidents, which are a main concern of the industry and its various stakeholders.

We draft recommended practices, promote the integration of safety into every aspect of daily operations, work to develop a level playing field for safety across the industry, and collect the safety data that direct our activities.
