Safety Programs

Gran Tierra has a simple objective with regard to safety: ensure that no one gets hurt as a consequence of our operations.

Actions that Gran Tierra undertakes to eliminate or reduce safety risks include:

  • Implementing proven safety management systems, procedures and tools with a goal of driving accident and incident rates to zero.
  • Working closely with contractors on our sites and insist that they also implement effective safety management processes.
  • Setting annual goals for safety performance. Oversight and accountability of our performance set by senior management and the Board of Directors.

GTE’s safety programs and practices include:

  • Implementing emergency management software for newly acquired facilities.
  • Psychosocial risk preventive activities such as reducing workplace stress and maintaining a supportive workplace environment.
  • Using a risk-based approach to direct resources to address risks where they are the greatest. The approach includes dozens of targeted audits and inspections, “Job Safety Analysis Meeting Reviews” with contractors and safety walk-arounds to different work sites.
