In 2007, the joint Ipieca-IOGP Health Committee published Health performance indicators: a guide for the oil and gas industry. Content from that report was used to develop two tools (the gap analysis tool and the percentage tool) which are used to:
- Assess health leading performance indicators within individual companies
- Compare performance between different parts of a company and between participating companies
The process involves a self-assessment of the company's performance in relation to standardized statements about the level of implementation of the company's own health management systems. The participating companies perform this self-assessment on the scope of their operational activities; therefore, there is no separation between upstream and downstream operations.
Both tools are used to gauge health performance between participating Ipieca and IOGP member companies on a yearly basis, helping to identify weak areas and areas for improvement. The results are published in the below reports.
Guidance on the application of the health performance idicators can be found here.
