Share This Post

While it is crucial for the right policies and systems to be in place, the fact is that ultimately safety records are delivered by people. As FIRST E&P celebrates the passing of the 5-million-man hour mark of Lost-Time Incident Free Operations in November 2022, the company does so with pride in the strong sense of personal ownership and responsibility displayed by all FIRST E&P employees towards maintaining a safe workplace.

In light of this, a key part of our celebrations to commemorate the milestone was a recommitment by our employees to continue to keep safety as a key priority in a bid to deliver the next 5 million Man-hours of operations with zero lost-time incidents.

We collected dozens of pledges from employees that show just how important and personal safety is to us as an organization.

See some pledges made by FIRST E&P employees below, as well as some pictures from the employee event held on November 4th to celebrate the delivery of the world class milestone.
