SBM Offshore implements consultation and participation in accordance with the applicable rules and regulations, and with the ISM onboard offshore units in the form of joint committee. The committee meets with the management team at an agreed frequency to address health and welfare and safety concerns of the employees.

All employees are provided HSSE trainings to familiarize themselves with the Company’s health, safety, and security rules and regulations. As part of the training content, individuals attend internal classroom training, attend external training, practice on hands-on training or perform e-learning. The training topics are based on the hazards identified through the structured identification process as well as the regulatory requirements and includes Company standard training package such as security, Life Saving Rules, display screen equipment, site hazard awareness etc.

HSS incidents are reported and managed through the Company centralized incident management tool (SRS – Single Reporting System) which is a web-based reporting system that is used to collect data on all incidents occurring in all locations where the Company operates. The system records safety, environmental, security incidents, loss of containments, equipment failure and damage only incidents.

SBM Offshore reports on all incidents classified as fatalities, injuries and high consequence injuries - work-related injuries that results in a fatality or in an injury from which the worker is not expected to recover from within six months. Safety incidents are reported based on the incident classifications as defined by the IOGP Report 2019s – September 2020.

Investigations, based on the type, criticality and severity of the event, are performed by specifically identified personnel using methods among which TapRoot® and 5 Why. The Company also reports incident data from contractor’s construction facilities if the incident is related to an SBM Offshore project.

The data are tracked daily, consolidated monthly, and disclosed on an annual basis. Results are recorded and reported in accordance with the GRI Standards and IOGP guidelines. The results are compared to previous years, as well as benchmarked against the IOGP averages.
