Health, Safety & Environmental Policy

Africa Oil is committed to operating responsibly. Our goal is to create a working environment such that we cause no harm to people, and where we minimize our impact on the environment.

Africa Oil manages our business in accordance with the following principles:

  • We will meet or surpass statutory requirements and best practice;
  • We will operate our business to ensure proactive risk mitigation;
  • We will hold ourselves and our contractors accountable for compliance with our policies and procedures;
  • We will provide appropriate resources and will ensure accountabilities are clear;
  • We will measure our performance and strive for continuous improvement;
  • We will plan and be prepared for potential emergencies;
  • We will investigate and learn from incidents; and
  • We will encourage open and honest communication.

Should operational results and safety ever come into conflict, we all have a responsibility to choose safety over operational results and Africa Oil leadership will support that choice. This includes the responsibility to stop a job wherever activities may conflict with this policy.
