FOL adheres strictly to international best practices on Health, Safety, Security and Environment plus the terms of the EIA (Environmental Impact Assessment) approvals it secured from the Department of Petroleum Resources. Since commencement of full scale development and production activities in 2006, Frontier Oil has conducted its operations without any major health, safety, environmental or security incidents. During this period, the company has achieved more than 9 million man-hours of LTI (Loss Time Injury) free operations. This record has its foundations in two firm HSSE commitments: Empowering every member of the FOL team, and management commitment to effective HSSE practices and matters.
- Empowerment: The first step to empowerment is education. At Frontier Oil, every new member of staff is put through a robust and comprehensive orientation and HSSE induction within a few days of duty resumption. In addition, daily tool box meetings are held before the commencement of any operational activity to ensure that all staff are aware of any hazard that may impact their safety or security during the day’s planned activities. Beyond the basics of education, each Frontier Oil staff is empowered and authorized to “stop the work” if they observe an unsafe act being carried out or if an operational activity is being conducted in an unsafe condition or manner. Each and every one of our staff are not only empowered but have a responsibility to “stop the work”.
- Management Commitment to HSSE Matters: Protecting our people is not just a slogan. We live it and breathe it, and this philosophy starts at the very top of our management team. Our managers are on-the-ground, inspecting facilities and interacting with staff on a regular basis. We see it as our duty to ensure that not only are our HSSE policies & procedures being followed but that we work with each and every member of staff, our contractors and most importantly of all their sub-contractors so they all understand the impact of their role in promoting the wellbeing of themselves , their colleagues, and the general public as well property and the environment.
