A safety culture at Gazprom Neft is based on personal responsibility of each employee and the involvement of all Company employees and contractors in the process of improving safety levels. This priority is reflected in the Company’s corporate slogan — “Safety Begins with You”.

underwent industrial and ecology safety and labor protection training in 2017

The Company is continuously developing its employee training programme in industrial, environmental and occupational safety.

Contractors are also involved in the Company’s training programme. Their managers and specialists undergo cascade training in environmental safety in the following areas:

  • compliance with the requirements of environmental legislation at production facilities;
  • handling of production and consumption wastes at the Company’s facilities;
  • requirements of corporate documentation related to environmental protection.

Contractors’ compliance with the corporate HSE standards is one of the basic selection criteria applied to potential contractors in the competitive bidding process.

Gazprom Neft has developed and introduced a program called “Steps” aimed at ensuring that contractors comply with the corporate safety rules. In 2016, Gazprom Neft introduced a contractor HSE rating system and a corporate database of potential contractors.
