SLB has a long-standing commitment to the highest standards for the health and safety of our employees, customers, and contractors, as well as to the protection of the environment in the communities where we live and work.

Performance Improvement

SLB captures data on its own HSE performance via QUEST, an in-house online system. Accessible by all employees, QUEST captures HSE events and Risk Identification Reports (RIRs), facilitates investigations, records audits, manages remedial work plans (RWPs), shows improvement suggestions, posts recognitions, tracks HSE training, and facilitates HSE reports and data analysis.

Sharing best practices

SLB shares HSE best practices through technical papers and other means and is a recognized industry leader in HSE performance.

HSE Management System

The SLB HSE Management System defines the HSE principles by which we conduct our operations worldwide. Management communicates the HSE philosophy to all employees, customers, contractors, and third parties associated with our business, and each SLB unit must provide positive evidence of conformance to the system.

The HSE Management System model comprises eight interrelated components:

  • Commitment, leadership, and accountability
  • Policies and objectives
  • Organization and resources
  • Contractor and supplier management
  • Risk management
  • Business processes
  • Performance monitoring and improvement
  • Audits and reviews

These are continuously improved upon by conformance checks:

  • On day-to-day standards and procedures (controls)
  • On the management system (correction)
  • Through modifications to the management system (improvement).
