About SPPE

Production safety systems, subsurface safety devices, and safety device testing, including safety and pollution prevention equipment (SPPE) play a critical role in protecting workers and the environment during offshore oil and gas production operations. The SafeOCS SPPE data collection program offers a resource to help the oil and gas industry capture and share key lessons from significant near-miss and other safety events to prevent, identify, and mitigate potential high-consequence risks.

Reporting of SPPE failures is required by the Bureau of Safety and Environmental Enforcement (BSEE) under regulation 30 CFR 250.803. All SPPE failures must be reported to SafeOCS, administered by the Bureau of Transportation Statistics (BTS), as BSEE’s designated third party for collection of this information under 30 CFR 250.803(d).
