Prioritizing performance improvements

Schlumberger captures its own performance data via QUEST, an online system that provides immediate consolidation of HSE information. Accessible by all employees, QUEST monitors reporting of HSE events and Risk Identification Reports (RIRs), facilitates investigations and records audits, manages remedial work plans (RWPs), shows improvement suggestions, posts recognitions, tracks HSE training, and facilitates HSE reports and data analysis.

Global Citizenship

As a business and a community of individuals Schlumberger is connected to a number of global challenges. As the focus of our Global Citizenship framework, we have chosen the six issues to which we make the most significant contribution in the natural course of our activity. Four of these issues are HSE related: minimizing the environmental impact of our business operations, promoting driving safety, preventing malaria, and raising awareness of HIV and AIDS.

Sharing Best Practices

Schlumberger has a long-standing commitment to share best practices through HSE Technical Papers and other means, and is a recognized industry leader in HSE performance.
