Hazard Recognition and Safety Observations
In 2018, we remained steadfast in our focus and communication around hazard identification and observation. Through our mobile app, individuals can note an observed hazard, upload a photo, provide additional context and submit the observation. As use of this tool spread across our organization, employee-submitted observations increased from roughly 300 per month to an average of nearly 3,000 global observations submitted per month by the end of 2018.
We communicate every observation submitted in a daily report that is shared with all Noble Energy employees. We continually utilize this valuable information in safety discussions and company-wide safety communications. We are excited to build upon this momentum and we remain vigilant in reviewing our safety procedures to isolate areas for improvement and close existing gaps. In this way, we will successfully eliminate safety incidents before they ever occur.
