Health and Safety

A safe workplace remains a top priority for Genel and we are proud that we once again achieved our target of zero lost time injuries (LTI) across TTOPCO and Genel operations in 2019. Genel has continued this track record since 2015, now representing over 12 million working hours without a single LTI.

This is a performance that we are proud of, and we continue to enhance our procedures and working practices in order to achieve best in class results. For example, during 2019 Genel installed driving monitoring systems for all field security vehicles and developed HSE readiness and assurance plans for all high-risk contracts. We have also recently implemented a medical fitness to work program for our employees. These initiatives, among others, helped us achieve a successful annual audit for OHSAS 18001:2007 certification and British Safety Council 5 star rating.

The successful track record highlights how HSE forms a core focus of Genel’s operations and is kept front of mind through regular training sessions and site visits, which demonstrate clear leadership and reaffirm our focus. In 2019 alone, we conducted 66 HSE management site visits, 105 emergency response drills and two crisis simulations exercises. Furthermore, the attentiveness to the safe running of our operations helped us to also achieve our target of zero loss of primary containment events, now for two consecutive years. As Genel expands operations, we will continue to work diligently at putting in place the best possible processes to help continue this positive performance.
