Abstract:

The Marine Board of the National Research Council completed a comprehensive assessment of the safety of the technologies and regulations pertaining to outer continental shelf OCS oil and gas development. An important area of study was safety information because without a strong safety information component in the OCS regulatory program, it is not readily possible for the government to identify safety problems and courses of action. In response to this concern, the Minerals Management Service MMS requested in June 1982 that the Marine Board provide an analysis of OCS safety information systems, including the types of information to be collected, analytical processes for utilizing data, and techniques for maximizing compatibility with other information systems. The Commission on Engineering and Technical Systems of the National Research Council convened the Committee on OCS Safety Information and Analysis under its Marine Board. Members of the committee were selected for their experience in risk analysis, system safety, marine industrial safety, OCS industrial safety programs, OCS regulations and industrial compliance strategies, protection of the marine environment, and the environment of the heavy industrial workplace. Consistent with the policies and procedures of the National Research Council, obtaining an appropriate balance of perspectives was an important consideration in choosing committee members.
