This is a summary of the 29 IMCA Safety Flashes published during 2022. All the published safety events or incidents are available on the IMCA website as individual web pages at Safety Flashes, comprising a number of events or incidents collected as a PDF, are circulated to members (only) by email.

The 29 Flashes covered 76 individual incidents or events shared by IMCA members. A further 64 incidents or events from information already in the public domain, from different trade bodies and/or regulators, were shared as being of interest. It should be noted that Safety Flashes are intended to be read by our members’ offshore crews, and by office-based safety professionals.

IMCA Safety Flashes are aligned with the IOGP Life-saving Rules. 25% of our members’ incidents or events involved the “Line of Fire” rule. 22% were “By-passing Safety Controls”. For completeness it should be noted that an incident or event might fall under more than one IOGP Life-saving Rule – or under none at all.
