One of the main themes of the technical meeting held on Thursday, May 26, 2022 between officials and specialists from the National Oil Corporation's Departments of Health, Safety, and Environment, and in the presence of the Chairman of the Management Committee of Acacos Oil Operations was the need for the readiness and effectiveness of early warning systems and fixed and transported fire systems in the field of al-Sharara oil and in the reservoir yard at the corner.
The Spark field's unique geographical location and large distances from the rest of the oil fields necessitated everyone's agreement that the levels of preparedness and response to occupational health, safety, and environmental emergencies should be raised to the highest levels, given the difficulty of assisting and coordinating joint cooperation mechanisms with most other oil company fields to carry out rapid and joint response work in emergencies.
The meeting also agreed that performance indicators should be monitored, calculated, and analyzed, that the concept of conducting risk assessment studies should be consolidated, and that the evaluation results should be translated into preventive and precautionary measures to reduce the risk of accidents that may occur as a result of the company's various operations activities.
Significant training activity and a large number of awareness and vocational education campaigns were carried out, according to the content of the company's presentation.
All delegates agreed that it was necessary to continue holding such meetings in order to achieve complementary roles and work in the spirit and culture of the same team to ensure the safety of workers and operations, as well as to establish a safe and sound working environment.
