Our performance

We see continuous improvement in our performance as essential, as we aim to minimise the impacts and to maximise the benefits arising from our activities.

Safety Indicators

We are committed to reporting on our performance in a transparent and responsible manner.

Personal safety

In 2017, in terms of personal accident ratio, we highlight the following:

  • zero fatalities;
  • reduction of the Total Recordable Injury Rate compared to the previous years.

 

2014 2015 2016 2017 Target 2018
1.4 1.3 0.8 0.8 0.5

* LTIFR = no. of fatalities and lost workday cases per million worked hours (includes own staff and contractors)

  Lost-time accidents Frequency Index Lost-time accidents Frequency Index Lost-time accidents Frequency Index Lost-time accidents Frequency Index Lost-time accidents Frequency Index

* TRIR = no. of total injuries (fatalities + lost workday cases + restricted workday cases + medical treatment cases) per million worked hours (includes own staff and contractors).

** Includes all the business units of Galp, except E&P non-operated and Brazil Biofuels.

Note: the reporting scope of accident indicators includes the entire Galp universe, with the exception of the Biofuel Business Unit (Brazil activity) and non-operated E&P. In 2014, we started to consolidate information from the Galp International Unit and operated E&P.

Process safety

In terms of process safety, our performance is aligned with industry benchmarks. It must be highlighted there was a reduction by 50% of the process safety event rate of Tier 1 and Tier 2 compared to 2015.

At Galp, we aim to set even more ambitious goals that position us at the level of the best performers.

  2013 2014 2015 2016 2017
Tier 1  0.33 0.31 0.32 0.17 0.23
Tier 2  0.89 0.54 0.50 0.39 0.47

* Process Safety Performance Indicator (PSPI) adopting the API 754 – Process Safety Performance Indicators for the Refining and Petrochemical Industries.

Tier 1 is a primary containment loss of major consequence: unplanned release of any material, including non-toxic and non-flammable materials, from a process that results in a very serious consequence.

Tier 2 is a primary containment loss of minor consequences: unplanned release of any material, including non-toxic and non-flammable materials, resulting in a consequence.

* Figures for accidents only (near miss not included).

Health indicators

We monitor the performance of our programmes and encourage the reporting of key indicators of occupational health and medical surveillance.

Alongside the development of the culture and of the operational procedures associated with occupational safety and health, health surveillance has contributed to our performance in terms of the incidence of occupational diseases.
