Responsibility - HSE


HSE Safety Metrics

At Anadarko, a safety-first culture is a way of life. Adherence to safe-work guidance and practices is a requirement and the way we choose to do business.

Stop Work Authority

All employees and contractors on Anadarko locations globally are authorized to exercise Stop Work Authority to communicate safety concerns. We make sure that all tasks are performed safely and in a manner consistent with Anadarko’s principles and core values.

Industry-Leading Total Recordable Incident Rate

In 2015, approximately 86 percent of our operating areas produced oil and natural gas without an employee recordable incident. As a result, our employee total recordable incident rate (TRIR) (recordable incidents per 100 workers) for the year was an industry-leading 0.34.

Safety-First Reaches Beyond the Field

At Anadarko, safety is built into our corporate performance goals. Anadarko’s annual compensation program is funded with a corporate-performance multiplier and based upon adherence to our core values and pre-defined operational, financial and safety goals as set by our Board of Directors. Since 2008, Anadarko employees have met or exceeded our safety performance against these continually improving metrics.

We strive to be an organization of continuous improvement never settling for “good enough.” Our approach to safety has resulted in continuous improvement of HSE performance as we strive for zero incidents throughout all of our workplaces.

Safety Data Sheets
