TNK-BP has developed a comprehensive program for integrating the safe operation culture aimed at mitigation and elimination of industrial and environmental risks. Elena Kompasenko, Vice President, Health, Safety and Environment, TNK-BP, presented this large-scale project to participants of the International HSE Excellence Europe Forum 2012 in Rome.
The safe operation culture inculcates careful and meticulous attitude to health, safety and environmental protection in all employees and contractors of the company and ensures strict compliance with all standards and regulations of the company. A special and very important role in integration of the safe operation culture is entrusted to leaders and managers of company subdivisions who imbue responsible attitude to the work and environment in all employees.
The project was presented at a round table meeting dedicated to industrial safety, where E. Kompasenko served as the moderator. Best specialists from the USE, Europe, and Central Asia highly appreciated the project, discussed its different aspects, and outlined possibilities for its implementation in international practice.
"Safety is one of the highest priorities of TNK-BP. Adherence to industrial safety rules and regulations may only be ensured by personal leadership and absolute intolerance to their violations. We are confident that the safe operation culture in any company is based, first of all, on the behavioral standards of employees. This is why these aspects are discussed in TNK-BP at all levels – from the Board of Directors to personnel lounges,” said she.
