This is one carried over from the old forum

IMCA places much emphasis on its role in aiding safe and efficient operations. Throughout the organisation this is visible from the range of guidance based on many years' cumulative operating experience. However, one of the less publicly obvious but crucial systems IMCA maintains is that for the dissemination of important information on those incidents which do occur and the lessons learnt from them that can help prevent such incidents re-occuring elsewhere in the industry.

This section has been relaunched and now includes safety flashes from the past twelve months to aid the dissemination of this crucial safety-related material through the offshore industry. Members receive these flashes as they are issued and also have access to a secure online documentation site which includes all flashes issued since 1997. These flashes also provide an example of the strong focus of IMCA's programme on working with and through its members, with their combined world-wide experience, to improve offshore safety and are one of the impetuses in the development of this programme.

In addition to disseminating the information received initially, the information received from members on these incidents is crucial in aiding divisional management committees when they formulate their work programmes. A number of workshops, briefing notes and guidance documents have followed on directly from issues first raised in these safety flashes.

All members are strongly encouraged to pass on information on incidents and the lessons learned therefrom, in order to assist in raising the standards of safe and efficient operations world-wide throughout the industry.

Anyone wishing to contribute to these notices is asked to send details to the IMCA offices (e-mail All information will be anonymised or sanitised, as appropriate.
