Safety Performance

We work continuously on enhancing our processes towards zero incident performance.

We plan our health and safety activities by tracking our progress and monitoring the world events. We measure our success in health and safety by frequency of incidents over a set amount of work in man-hours. Our health and safety records are presented for the period 2012 — 2020 with a focus on 2020.

The graph below demonstrates the Lost Time Injury Frequency (LTIF)1 and Total Recordable Injury Frequency (TRIF)2.

In 2020, KPO observed a certain decrease in total recordable injuries. The number of Lost Time Injuries remained the same (2 injuries). In 2020, LTIF was 0.06 (no changes vs 0.06 in 2019) and TRIF — 0,18 (vs 0.28 in 2019).

KPO investigates all incidents in order to prevent their recurrence. Besides, we share our lessons learned with our contractors and other interested parties, and adopt practices from others to improve safety.

LTI Frequency and TRI Frequency: KPO and Contractors, 2012-2020

Road Traffic Incident Frequency: KPO and Contractors, 2018-2020

Note: KPO uses the following method to calculate LTI and TRI frequencies:

1Frequency of Lost Time Injuries (LTIF) = number of Lost Time Injuries (lost work day cases + fatalities) x 1 000 000 / man-hours.

2Frequency of Total Recordable Injuries (TRIF) = number of recordable incidents (lost work day cases + medical treatment cases + restricted work day cases) x 1 000 000 / man-hours).

No severe Road Traffic Incident (RTI) was reported in 2020. The RTI frequency per 1 million km driven decreased from 0.02 in 2019 to zero in 2020. In 2020, the kilometers driven by KPO vehicles amounted to 37.9 million km, compared to 42.7 million km in 2019. One of the reasons for decrease in kilometres driven is the restriction on travelling/transportation due to the COVID-19. The zero RTI rate is associated with the implementation of a number of measures under the Road Safety Improvement Plan for 2020.

KPO RTIF calculation method: RTIF = number of RTI (severe) x 1,000,000 / km driven.

Fatality Frequency: KPO and contractors, 2018-2020

Note:  Fatality frequency calculation method used by KPO:
fatality frequency (per million man-hours worked) = number of fatalities x 1,000,000 / man-hours worked.
There was one fatal incident at KPO in 2018.

Peer comparison

Every year we review our key safety performance indicators against the other O&G producers’ indicators reported by International Organisation of Oil and Gas Producers (IOGP). IOGP annually publishes HSE performance indicators on the website

In 2020, the number of Lost Time Injuries in KPO remained the same. If compared with other peer companies in 2020, KPO LTIF is better than the performance of IOGP 10 top and IOGP average.
