Policy and Management
Gazprom Neft is fully committed to constantly improving safety at its facilities and reducing accident, industrial injury, and occupational disease rates.
Protecting people’s lives and health is our number one value and it is our belief that good results cannot be justified if they are achieved through violation of safety rules or run counter to the principles of environmental protection. Building an effective workplace safety system is a top priority for Gazprom Neft. The agents of change at any company are its leaders. Gazprom Neft’s senior executives have undertaken personal commitments to strictly observe workplace safety rules.
I am confident that their example will provide a strong incentive for our employees and contractors to reconfigure business processes leading to positive changes in production culture and attitudes towards occupational safety and health.
In 2015, the Company launched a project to improve its occupational safety culture. The Gazprom Neft Management Board set out a corporate strategy for the development of Health, Safety and the Environment (HSE), Occupational Safety (OS) and Civil Defense (CD) for the next several years, its priorities and the key objective in industrial safety and environmental protection:
Goal — Zero: Zero Harmful Impact on People, Assets and the Environment during operations
This vision is based on the belief that each accident or injury can be prevented.
In its HSE, OS and CD activities Gazprom Neft is guided by the requirements of Russian legislation as well as international and corporate standards. The underlying corporate document defining the Company’s operating principles and commitments is the Industrial, Fire, Transport, Environmental Safety, Occupational Health, and Civil Defense Policy. The policy covers all Gazprom Neft subsidiaries and outlines uniform strategic goals, obligations and responsibilities in HSE, OS and CD.
Corporate Industrial Safety Policy
HSE, OH and CD expenses for 2016
All of the Company’s subsidiaries and business units have a Corporate HSE, OS and CD Management System that complies with the international standards OHSAS 18001:2007 and ISO 14001:2004.
This work has led to a reduction in the number of incidents at the Company’s production facilities in 2016 and a further decrease in the injury rate (LTIF).
