Reduced occupational injuries

The Lost Time Injury Frequency Rate (LTIFR) is adopted in international practice as the main indicator of the Company’s efficiency in the area of occupational health and industrial safety. LTIFR has been applied in Zarubezhneft JSC since 2015.

In 2018, the accident index rate was 0.62 —more than two times lower than the 2015 fgure (1.27).

The positive dynamics of this indicator is associated with the active development of the safety culture in the Group of Companies: annual strategic sessions on leadership training, general training and advanced training in the area of HSE have been arranged for the managers and employees of the Corporate Center and the subsidiaries.

The subsidiaries regularly hold training sessions and examinations in the following categories in the area of the labor safety:

  • “Industrial Safety”;
  • “Labor Safety and First Pre-medical Aid”;
  • “Basics of Fire Safety”;
  • “Knowledge of Rules and Norms of Working at Electrical Units”;
  • “Safe Operation of Electrical Units”.

Zarubezhneft JSC has developed and approved the long-term Corporate Training Program in the Field of HSE for the Zarubezhneft Group of Companies for the Period 2017-2019.

The program is aimed at the development of leadership and a safe production culture.
