Safety

QGEP has an emergency management structure based on the Incident Command System (ICS). ICS allows for the integration of different installations, equipment, personnel, procedures, and communication systems within a common organizational structure developed for effective and efficient management. The system is utilized to organize short- and long-term operations for a wide range of emergency types, relating to simple or complex incidents, be they of a natural or artificial nature.

In order to disseminate the environmental and safety values on the work front, specific procedures to have been developed and are described in the Safety, Environment, and Health Manual (SMS), which allows easy access to the Company’s standards. Periodically, SMS inspections and audits of QGEP’s activities are performed with a goal to continually improve processes as well as prevent accidents. The Company encourages all its contractors to fill out safety observance cards so as to identify and correct deviations that could lead to accidents. Other prevention tools are also used frequently, such as work permits, preliminary task analysis, daily SMS dialogs, and safety meetings.

Before the start of operations at drilling and production units, approval of the Operational Safety Document (DSO) together with The Brazilian National Agency of Petroleum, Natural Gas and Biofuels (ANP) is required. DSO is composed of documents and procedures that define the way in which QGEP ensures the safety management of its facilities. ANP can perform audits at the Company’s units to verify DSO’s compliance with its Technical Safety Regulations and with the industry’s best practices.

The collaborator’s workforce is the vector responsible for the growth and development of a company’s business. QGEP invests in the maintenance of its facilities so they are in adequate conditions regarding organization, comfort, and hygiene in order to preserve the health and wellbeing of its workers.

The ambulatory service plan with emergency relocation to specialized centers is an example of a practice that guarantees immediate care to on-board collaborators. To provide emergency services, QGEP counts on teams that are highly specialized and trained not only on the equipment it uses, but also on how to handle the most diverse situations, including mobility via ambulance or helicopter.

Other initiatives include the Worker’s Environmental Education Project (PEAT) and the Internal Work-Related Accident Prevention Week (SIPAT), an event dedicated to the wellbeing of the matrix’s collaborators that has been promoted annually since the Company’s inception. The Environmental Risk Prevention Program (PPRA), in turn, aims to care for the health, ergonomics, and maintenance of a healthy environment in the Company’s offices and operational sites.
