COS Safety Shares

The Center for Offshore Safety (COS) is designed to promote the highest level of safety for offshore drilling, completions, and operations through leadership and effective management systems addressing communication, teamwork, and independent third-party auditing and certification.  COS enables operational excellence in part by enhancing and continuously improving industry's safety and environmental performance and stimulating cooperation within industry to share industry learnings.

The Learning from Incidents and Events (LFI) Program was established to provide a process for COS members to share and learn from incidents and High Value Learning Events (HVLE) that occur in offshore operations.  Reporting is voluntary and data confidentiality is maintained through a process administered by a 3rd-party before submittal to COS.

The COS Safety Shares presented here represent the commitment of COS to its mission of promoting safe operations by sharing industry knowledge.
