CGG is committed to achieving and maintaining excellence in all aspects of its operations and recognizes and accepts the mandate to conduct its activities in a safe and responsible manner and to provide the resources necessary to develop, operate and maintain health, safety and environmental protection policies and objectives. CGG provides a system of work procedures that protect the health and safety of its own employees, visitors, contractors and the public and at the same time minimizes the impact of its activities on the environment.
CGG Marine is committed to and supports a culture that:
Employees of both CGG Marine and its contractors are involved in the creation and maintenance of such a supportive culture.
CGG Marine believes that safe operations depend on a companywide culture that supports the objectives and methods described in the corporate Operating Management System, based on:
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
Whenever possible, a Search and Rescue (SAR) helicopter is kept on standby for emergency evacuations, but for vessels in remote locations, a doctor and upgraded medical facilities, complete with the first civilian offshore “walking blood banks” are provided on board. This makes it possible for onboard medical staff to collect fresh whole blood from crew members. Following informed consent, crew members undergo screening for infectious diseases and ABO Rh matches before mobilization.
Safety is always of paramount importance and our standard training procedures are suitable for almost all environments. However, some additional measures are implemented to maintain the safety of the people and the ship when heading to the Arctic, for example cold weather training and adapted personal protective equipment. There is also additional Man Over Board (MOB) training to ensure a 3-4 minute recovery time. In near-zero or sub-zero waters, unconsciousness sets in after 4-5 minutes immersion.
