We continuously assess the risk at facilities throughout their life cycle.
We believe that the safety of facilities and operations starts at the design phase. In this phase, risks are identified and analysed so that technically appropriate solutions are implemented to eliminate them or to reduce them to acceptable levels.
In the exploration phase, the facilities are maintained and operated in a safe manner, and risk analyses are carried out periodically to reassess existing risks and to ensure that the identified risks remain at acceptable levels.
We have elected the following as priority areas of action:
- leadership and organisational culture;
- risk management in all phases of our operations’ life cycle;
- accident prevention;
- managing the change of facilities, technologies and human resources;
- ensuring the mechanical integrity of the facilities.
Our operations and facilities are verified periodically by internal and external auditors, who ensure their compliance with the established requirements. Get to know our management systems.
We consider that process safety results from applying good design and engineering principles, as well as robust operating and maintenance practices that allow for the prevention of accidents.
