About accident summaries

These summaries have provided regulatory agencies and industry participants with access to standardised summary accident information, and an analysis that highlights trends and risks. While the focus of the annual analyses has been on notifiable accidents, trends in non-notifiable accidents have also been examined.

Energy Safety replaced the annual summaries with quarterly publications at the beginning of 2009 to provide this information on a more frequent basis. The quarterly publications cover the notifiable accident investigations completed in that quarter. This differs from the previous annual summaries that published information on accidents that occurred within that year.

The annual analyses complement the quarterly accident summaries. They examine accident data and trends related to accidents that occurred in that year.
