HSE Performance

At Baker Hughes, our goal is to make today, and every day, a Perfect HSE Day – that is, a day with no injuries, no accidents, and no harm to the environment – worldwide.

Baker Hughes delivered the best HSE performance in company history for the second consecutive year in 2015. We boosted the number of Perfect HSE Days to a remarkable 146, up from 22 just three years ago.

2015 HSE Goal Performance

The Perfect HSE Day concept connects broadly with employees on a personal level, in a way that statistical improvement goals never could. In 2015, the commitment of our employees to the Perfect HSE Day and supporting efforts delivered:

  • A year in which no employees lost their lives and 174 fewer were injured (38% reduction in Total Recordable Incident Rate (TRIR))
  • 49 fewer days away from work (33% reduction in DAFWC rate)
  • 48 fewer short-service employee (SSE) recordable incidents (30% reduction in SSE TRIR)
  • 334 fewer preventable vehicle accidents (33% reduction in PVAR)
  • 293 fewer barrels spilled (40% reduction in spill volume)
  • 10% reduction in energy and water use

Road Transportation Safety Performance

To better direct our efforts on the accidents that we could affect, we narrowed our focus to preventable vehicle accidents. Using Preventable Vehicle Accident Rate (PVAR) as a new metric and our most critical performance indicator, we were rewarded with some great improvements in our transportation safety record.
