Baker Hughes HSE&S programs are simple, engaging, and systematic, driving us toward a more mature, interdependent culture that ensures greater efficiency.
We have a team approach to safety programs to ensure all workers arrive home safely at the end of the day. Employees are focused on achieving a more mature interdependent safety culture where they are responsible and supported to self-manage decisions and actions that have HSE&S consequences. They cooperate as teams across the enterprise to look after each other’s safety while delivering on the expectation that zero incidents are achievable.
One way we engage employees in HSE processes is to record their observations of safe and unsafe work practices. From recent tracking, we know employees are becoming increasingly proactive, evidenced by a dramatic rise in the number of behavioral observations per employee and, in particular, observations of safe work practices they have made.
Behavior-based safety programs are also used to engage employees. These programs encourage employees to closely examine their work activities and to adopt safer attitudes and behaviors. Employees are passionate about protecting their own safety and looking out for their fellow workers. They are expected to stop work if they have any safety or environmental concern while an activity is about to start or is underway. This practice extends to operations on customer sites and to those of our contractors.
