Safety is a core priority for Schlumberger. We embrace a safety mindset and build it into how we work. That is why we were able to take a proactive approach to COVID-19 outbreak response, quickly implementing a comprehensive outbreak management plan and adapting our work practices.

Our impact does not stop at the site or the office door—we also have initiatives that are contributing to the safety of the people in the communities where we live and work.

COVID-19 Management Standard

COVID-19 Management Standard

We adopted a new Management Standard which guides our work practices and helps us continue to operate safely around the world. We have made these documents available here, along with supporting resources, to help promote the sharing of safety best practices as they evolve and we all learn more about COVID-19.
