Generational makeup of Rompetrol
We adjusted our major skill development, professional and personal growth programs to the digital requirements of the current times. Highly skilled and motivated employees are our best asset, each with a role to play to deliver our sustainability agenda. In 2022 the average number of training hours per total headcount increasing to 13.41 from 6.68 in 2021.
To ensure sustainable operations, we prioritize the safety of our employees, contractors, and communities. Safety performance indicators are an essential tool for measuring and monitoring the effectiveness of our safety programs, policies and procedures.
As an industry best practice, we benchmark our main reactive indicator (LTIR – Lost Time Injury Rate) against International Oil and Gas Producers (IOGP) association. Our aim and efforts are towards LTIR 0, but considering the profile of our industry, the realistic objective and KPI for us is to be under the annual IOGP average.
Our key long-term objectives are:
The safety of our employees represents a top priority across all Group entities and operations, being a crucial part of our strategy. To ensure the safety and well-being of each employee we have been implementing and constantly updating extensive safety standards and procedures in an attempt to consolidate our “safety first” culture.
Our commitment to safety extends beyond our employees, to our partners and suppliers, our customers, and the communities in which we carry out our activities. Our risk-based approach follows a clear set of standards aligned with national and international regulatory requirements. We have an integrated QHSE management system in place, which is certified against ISO 9001, ISO 14001, and ISO 45001.
The implemented Management System consists of nine distinct elements covering all the QHSE topics and professional areas. The entire KMG International workforce is under the scope of the mentioned system, including operational and non-operational employees and interns.
The Group’s various internal policies pertaining to occupational health and safety cover all types of operations carried out throughout the Group and represent the foundation of both preventive and reactive programs aimed at delivering safe, secure, and sustainable operations.
Rompetrol monitors HSE Contractor indicators, as a best practice, and to ensure that the same level of operational excellence is shared by our contractors.
The Group concluded 2022 with a 0.26 LTIR (Lost Time Injury Rate), compared to 0.46 in 2021. Except for the previous reporting period, when the indicator was impacted by a high severity incident occurred on the Petromidia platform, the LTIR in 2020 was 0.25, and 0.26 in 2019.
No Fatality cases were recorded by the Group during the reporting period. However, there were 4 Total Recordable Injuries and three first aid cases. There were no occupational illnesses reported by the Group in 2022. There were, however, 20 non-occupational illnesses recorded, most of which were not severe and didn’t result in medical leave.
Aside for the safety procedures and processes carried out at Group level and across all Business Units, Rompetrol places high focus on health and safety training, with more than 1,500 fire drills and more than 250,000 hours of QHSE training provided in 2022 alone.
