What is reported?
The monthly status report is used to report the average number of employees, contractors and marine crew working on the site during the previous month, along with the number of hours that they worked.
If injuries occurred on the site during the month being reported, the report includes a summary of the number of lost time injuries and the work days lost, days that workers were on alternative duties and the total days (‘calendar’ days) workers were off their regular occupations.
If there were alternative duties worked or days lost during the reported month, the injuries that led to these lost time or alternative duties days must be listed in the ‘Accident details’ section at the bottom of the form.
Who is responsible for reporting?
A representative of the operator of the petroleum operation or geothermal energy operation is responsible for submission of the monthly status report form, which must be submitted before the 15th day of every month.
