CGG recognizes that its HSE performance ultimately lies with each of its individual employees and subcontracted employees, their ability to work together as a team and their commitment to take responsibility for their own safety and their colleagues.

Under this principle, HSE is a key responsibility for Line Management, and each manager has specific objectives in line with our HSE policies.

Training is an essential component of workplace HSE. It begins with orientation for all employees and contractors, and continues with updates and reviews through regularly scheduled meetings and refreshers. All employees are committed to achieving annual training, including general and job-specific HSE training.

In order to have a systematic and comprehensive approach to HSE CGG applies a Management System based on Oil and Gas Producers recommended practice.

Rule 2

Rules to Live By 'Rule 2'

Individual risk awareness and responsibility are essential elements of our HSE Management System. Our behavioral program “Rules to Live By” and “Things We All Must Know” focuses on key safety behaviors and knowledge and is deployed across all activities and various languages. These rules are supported by clear procedures, a consequence management program and visible signage for worksites.

The Management System draws from CGG's long term and world-wide experience in the identification and control of risks. It is regularly updated to include requirements from international standards and major local regulations. It also reflects newly identified best practices within CGG operations, from the ongoing internal dissemination of information, information sharing amongst the membership of the International Association of Geophysical Contractors (IAGC) and OGP and from monitoring and benchmarking studies with other industries.

A cornerstone for high HSE performance is discipline in reporting all events, near misses and hazards. In CGG this is done with the reporting tool PRISM.

PRISM is a globally networked, structured, electronically distributed and controlled method of sharing QHSE records across all operating sites and units within CGG and for producing QHSE reports, verifying performance, including risk assessment and action point management. All CGG employees can access PRISM over the web.
