  • 90% of PDO/Contractor workforce live/work in the interior

  • Multi-Cultural/Language workforce, varying literacy levels

  • PDO has over 100 oil/gas fields, 2,500+ wells drilled to date

  • PDO & Contractors drive 120 Million Km per year on business

  • Approximately 12,750 drivers, 7,000 vehicles

  • Maintain over 6,000Km graded roads, 500Km black-top/asphalt

  • In 1999, PDO achieved its best Safety performance to date:

    • 70 days &10 million hours worked without an LTI

    • No Fatality

    • LTIF of 0.37 per million hours worked

Historical Trend in Safety Environment


Engineering Systems:

Hardware issues to engineer out hazards

Management Systems: develop procedures, etc. to control hazards

Focus on People:

empowerment and

conviction to work

The Causes of Injuries Environment


Lost Time Injuries

Medical Treatment

First-aid Cases

  • Unsafe acts & Unsafe conditions

  • 96% / 4 %

Slide8 l.jpg

Generic Underlying Causes of Incidents Environment

  • Lack of Effective Supervision (competence)

  • Inadequate Hazard Awareness (competence)

  • Not Following Basic Rules (compliance)

This has led to:

Compliance, Competence, Supervision and Road Safety being key themes for annual HSE Plans

Accountability for HSE Environment

  • Main Thrusts

  • Aim to protect health and safety of workers.

  • Staff are to be held accountable for actions that can lead to high potential incident or fatality based on past experience.

  • Deliberately breaking rules is worse than breaking rules out of


  • Same Framework for PDO and Contractors, via Industry Forum (OPAL) and Govt.

  • In certain cases management discretion will be exercised following

    incident investigation.

A full investigation must be completed, and proven case of deliberate misconduct made before application of rules

Slide37 l.jpg

Challenges Ahead Environment

  • In a multi-cultural environment, “Accountability for HSE” may be perceived negatively (blame culture)

  • Framework presented and accepted by Industry Forum, OPAL.

  • Industry Forum engagement ongoing with Government to obtain support for “Accountability for HSE” Framework

  • Implementation ONLY after effective “Workforce Engagement”

  • Roll out to concentrate on positive aspects of the scheme

  • Workforce HSE Culture can be significant consideration

  • Goal: Convince and Empower the workforce to work SAFELY
