Safety Management System
We are implementing a safety management system (SMS) that exceeds the requirements set forth by the Safety and Environment Management Systems (SEMS) requirements and International Association of Oil and Gas Producers (OGP) guidelines. This is to ensure our employees’ safety and to achieve zero incidents. We are creating processes and procedures that will better align us with our customers’ needs and requirements, and help us effectively respond to the ever-changing landscape of the oil and gas industry.
This safety management system requires compliance reviews to be performed at each district, to maintain adherence to the guidelines outlined in SMS. The reviews consist of key elements which are designed to ensure compliance of SMS. The goal is for SMS to be fully implemented by the end of the first quarter in 2014.
