Abstract [en]

Fire is a major threat in the petroleum industry. However, little has been published about the fire related incidents that have occurred in the Norwegian petroleum sector. To gain more knowledge, data from 985 incidents in the 1997 - 2014 period has been analysed. Examples of factors studied are type of facility involved, involved area or system, consequences and severity level. The analysis of the fire incidents reveals that even though many incidents are reported, the large majority of these have not imposed risks for severe fire accidents. It has also provided valuable information regarding possible dangerous situations, commonly in-volved areas, types of equipment as well as types of activity that were involved. Twenty-nine percent of the incidents were false alarms, which must be regarded as a high number in an industry where any production stop could be extremely costly.

Abstract [no]

I denne studien er informasjon fra brannstatistikk og andre kilder fra perioden 2005 – 2014 analysert, for å få mer detaljert kunnskap om hvem som omkommer i brann og hvorfor de omkommer. Dermed kan tiltak iverksettes mer målrettet for å redusere antall omkomne.  Følgende spørsmål er forsøkt besvart i studien: 1. Hvilke risikofaktorer forbindes med de som omkommer i branner i Norge? 2. Hva er årsakene til dødsbranner i Norge? 3. Hvordan kan dødsbranner best forebygges?  I den aktuelle perioden er det registrert 517 branner med 571 omkomne. Vi har kartlagt informasjon fra 347 politirapporter, identifisert 387 omkomne og trukket ut informasjon fra pasientjournalene til 248 av de omkomne.

Abstract [en]

In this study, information from fire statistics and other sources has been analyzed to get more detailed knowledge than before about who dies in fires and why. This will help to implement more targeted measures in order to reduce the number of people perishing in fires.  The study attempted to answer the following questions: 1. What risk factors are associated with those who perish in fires in Norway? 2. What are the causes of fatal fires in Norway? 3. How can fatal fires best be prevented?  A total of 517 fires with 571 fatalities are registered in the official fire statistics in the 2005 – 2014 period. We have examined 347 police investigation reports, identified 387 deceased and  extracted information from 248 medical records.

Abstract [en]

This paper presents a set of recommended reaction-To-fire test methods and related criteria for different construction products and furnishing products for use on offshore petroleum industry facilities. The system was first developed and published in 2008, as a response to performance based fire safety regulations. It has since then been extensively used by petroleum companies operating on the Norwegian shelf. The recommendations have been revised and updated recently to take revisions and developments of regulations, standards and test methods into account. These recommendations can be used as a part of the risk management system where the fire safety in high risk application areas shall be controlled, and are not limited to application of materials on facilities in the offshore petroleum industry only.

Abstract [en]

This report presents a set of recommended reaction-to-fire test methods and related criteria for different construction products and furnishing products for use on offshore petroleum industry facilities.   The principle reaction-to-fire properties that will be critical for fire development are  heat release  smoke production  production of toxic smoke  spread of flames  production of burning droplets/debris.  The test methods presented in this report documents one or several of these properties for a range of different products

Abstract [no]

Denne rapporten er utarbeidet på oppdrag fra Direktoratet for samfunnssikkerhet og beredskap (DSB). DSB har bedt RISE Fire Research om å bistå med evalueringer i forbindelse med utarbeidelse av forslag til revidert forskrift for organisering og dimensjonering av brann- og redningsvesenet.   Prosjektet har hatt som målsetting å evaluere spesifikke problemstillinger relatert til: 1. Responstid og innsatstid 2. Dimensjonering av beredskap a. Størrelse på samlet innsatsstyrke samt oppmøte b. Vaktberedskap – dagkasernering  3. Dimensjonering av beredskap – vaktlag og støttestyrke med hensyn til såkalt "fremskutt enhet"
