Health and safety is a vital consideration in any industry, but particularly so in ours. No other industry puts more effort into improving its safety performance through leadership, communication and co-operation.
At GASCO, we relentlessly pursue the goal of no harm to people und surrounding communities and no significant incidents. A goal of zero has to be the right one to set, but achieving it demands not just high standards of personal safety but also constant attention to all the aspects of safety that run through the many operations we manage.
Already in its 7th cycle, this annual seminar is a forum for GASCO to appreciate its partners and reaffirm its commitment to ensuring the safety and wellbeing of both their and GASCO’s workforce. Moreover, it is an enabler of open dialogue to improve our common HSE performance and safety culture.
This year’s seminar was conducted on Thursday 17th of November under the theme “Improving HSE Incidents Reporting, Analysis and Learning”, and particularly emphasized on leadership & commitment, communication, specialized trainings, as well as the review & enhancement of incident reporting requirements from a contractual point of view.
The more than 150 participants actively discussed existing gaps around these focus areas and brainstormed possible solutions. To achieve tangible improvements and make a real difference in our health and safety culture, the seminar concluded by assigning champions, who will sponsor adopted action items for implementation during 2017.
