BSEE and BTS signed an interagency agreement in November 2013 to develop the Voluntary Confidential Near-Miss Reporting System for use on the Outer Continental Shelf.

BSEE Workshops Set for Near Miss Reporting System

Los Angeles and Houston are the locations of the April workshops.

The federal Bureau of Safety and Environmental Enforcement announced it will host two public workshops to discuss the Voluntary Confidential Near-Miss Reporting System, April 22 in Los Angeles and April 24 in Houston. They will include presentations by BSEE and the U.S. Department of Transportation's Bureau of Transportation Statistics and will give the offshore oil and gas industry, stakeholders, and the public an opportunity to discuss the system.

"The Voluntary Confidential Near-Miss Reporting System has the potential to help prevent catastrophic incidents that endanger lives and the environment," said BSEE Director Brian Salerno. "However the tool is only as good as the information provided. We will need to gather input from the offshore industry on how to design a system that will yield maximum value for overall safety improvements."

BSEE and BTS signed an interagency agreement in November 2013 to develop the system for use on the Outer Continental Shelf. BTS will manage the confidential reports. Progress reports, trends analyses, and aggregated data will be developed by BTS and posted on the BTS website. "The BTS reports will enable BSEE to work with the offshore oil and gas industry as a whole to identify important trends and enhance safety across all operations," according to the agency.

Anyone planning to attend the workshops should register by April 11 at http://www.bsee.gov/near-miss-workshop/.
