• Review the current state of control of HSE issues which has been analysed with operational personnel and experts.
  • Rank priorities for improvement.
  • Commit to HSE objectives and programmes.

Our HSE assessments and objectives include health, safety and environmental assessments, legal reviews, monitoring targets and objectives and HSE specific programs.

Environmental assessment

Our HSE experts assess the environmental impacts of our activities, reporting them in:

  • Baseline surveys and other studies.
  • Environmental impact assessments.
  • Analysis of monitored environmental data and other environmental Management checks described in the HSE Management System.
These evaluations form the basis of our environmental objectives and programmes, including: 
  • Better tracking of emissions, discharges, hazardous wastes and oil spills.
  • New protection and emergency response measures.
  • Operational changes, etc.

Health assessment

To assess personnel health risks, we apply industry best practices and expertise from healthcare professionals.

Our evaluations help us improve our programmes for health and the prevention of occupational diseases:
  • Health awareness: health advice based on lifestyle, including confidential rehabilitation programmes.
  • Management of chemical risks at work: maintaining a list of authorised products.
  • Health support: a network of local facilities that provide medical care.
  • Health monitoring: medical testing tracked in a confidential database.
  • Health in the workplace: health-promoting protocol in the workplace (vaccinations, well-being at work, preventing musculoskeletal disorders, drug and alcohol tests).

Safety assessment

ENGIE  E&P International’s HSE specialists assess safety risks related to our activities using the very best industry methods:
  • Job safety analysis for operations.
  • Hazard identification and hazard and operability (HAZOP) analysis for technical systems and production.
  • Quantitative Risk Assessment.
  • Anomaly, near-miss, accident and incident analysis.
  • Audits. 
Using these methods, we regularly assess and control and prevention measures designed to:
  • Prevent energy hazards from causing harm.
  • Regain control of any energy hazard that has escaped the control measures.
Our evaluations form the basis of safety objectives and programmes to improve:
  • Prevention and mitigation measures for specific activities.
