Health, Safety & Environment (HSE)

We understand that our long-term sustainability and value creation will be driven by an integrated approach of our commercial objectives in alignment to our Environmental impact.

Health, Safety & Environment

At FIRST E&P, we are committed to operating with robust Health, Safety, and Environmental practices that assure safety and environmental excellence as well as the health of our people.

We provide and maintain a safe, secure, and healthy work environment, operating conditions, equipment, and systems of work to protect all our employees, contractors, and other people who may be affected by our activities as well as the integrity of our assets. We are  also committed to proactive deployments to ensure that the environment is protected from possibly harmful impacts resulting from our operations.

Our Commitment

Safety is at the top of our core values and demonstrates our organisation’s commitment. GOAL ZERO+ is our articulated HSE (Health Safety & Environment) ambition to ensure NO HARM to our PEOPLE, ENVIRONMENT, and ASSETS. Everyone in FIRST E&P – employees, contractors, and third parties are firmly dedicated to living this commitment and demonstrating it daily.

We understand the industry we work in and that robust safety standards are critical and non-negotiable. With GOAL  ZERO+ , there is a constant focus on safety in all aspects of our operations. All parties involved in our operations are to constantly drive for full compliance with all safety standards, protocols, and controls.

GOAL ZERO+ Objectives

Our ambition is to sustain and consolidate our NO HARM to our PEOPLE, ENVIRONMENT, AND ASSETS safety charter. In furtherance of our GOAL ZERO+, we will strive to:
  • Deepen understanding of FIRST E&P’s safe and sustainable delivery approaches
  • Build/improve trust and commitment through authentic leadership visibility
  • Grow/improve skills and ultimately safe behaviours
  • Embed the culture of active observation and intervention to prevent harm and/or loss
  • Sustain zero COVID-19 disruption to our projects and operations and
  • Prevent complacency which is usually a prelude to catastrophic events.
We have a strong and evolving safety culture. Goal Zero+ initiative led by the leadership of FIRST E&P will focus on strengthening our safety culture. Across all levels in the organisation and with all parties we work with, everyone is committed to safety.

Our Approach

Safety excellence is achieved through a combination of behaviours and deliberate actions.

We provide tailored engagements and training sessions for all our employees, contractors, and third parties to support awareness, knowledge, understanding of safety requirements, and improvement in requisite skills for safety-critical deliveries. By identifying risks and deploying preventive and proactive strategies, we develop an approach that ensures safety is a critical part of our business sustainability. To underpin this approach, the FIRST E&P Nine (9) Lifesaving Rules provide practical and work level guidelines to ensure safety requirements are adhered to.
We always ensure that our asset development lifecycle considers potential and associated impacts on the environment, and we strive to protect the ecosystems within our immediate operational environment and adjoining communities. We ensure that risk assessment and safe systems of work with effective control measures are in place for all the company’s activities, either executed directly or through our contractors or other third parties. The appropriate guidance is articulated in our HSE Management System, aligned with international industry standards and best practice.

Safety remains an integral part of our operations and we remain committed and invested in driving and delivering Goal Zero+ .
