Lundin Petroleum is committed to protect the health of its staff and contractors and to provide them with safe and rewarding working conditions. It is also committed to minimise potential impacts of its activities on neighbouring communities and on the environment. It has set out these commitments in dedicated Health, Safety and Environment policies.
In order to ensure that the policies translate into good practice, Lundin Petroleum has put in place a Health, Safety and Environmental (HSE) Management System - the Green Book.
HSE MANAGEMENT SYSTEM
The Green Book sets corporate requirements for the systematic and comprehensive integration of HSE issues in the management of the Company’s worldwide operations. It also serves to ensure that all operations meet Lundin Petroleum’s legal and ethical obligations, responsibilities and commitments in this field.
The Green Book aims to achieve continuous improvement of the Company’s HSE performance, through a process of planning, implementation, monitoring and review, as depicted to the right.
The Green Book establishes a framework for the setting and reviewing of corporate HSE goals and objectives from which country managers develop more detailed, local HSE management plans appropriate to the nature, scale and potential impacts of their operations. Lundin Petroleum expects all its employees, contractors and suppliers to be aware of, and promote understanding of HSE issues in the context of the business, in conformity with the framework established by the Green Book.
The Company provides the necessary training for its employees to ensure that they have the knowledge and capability to conduct operations in a manner that is consistent with the principles contained in the HSE Policies and the Green Book and the necessary resources, advice and guidance to ensure their implementation and communication throughout the organisation.
The Chief Executive Officer (CEO) is ultimately responsible for ensuring that the Company acts in accordance with Lundin Petroleum’s HSE policies and Green Book. The Chief Operating Officer (COO) is responsible for requiring country management to clearly define HSE objectives and targets, and attribute roles and responsibilities in their respective operations. Monitoring and reporting is ensured by the Vice President Corporate Responsibility, while compliance is ascertained through internal and/or third party audits, as required.
Lundin Petroleum’s Board of Directors has approved the HSE policies and the Green Book; it reviews HSE performance on an annual basis.
