OGDCL has developed and implemented the HSE system to improve its HSE performance and ultimately to reduce the adverse impact of its operations, activities, and services on every associated element of the society.
Health, Safety and Environmental responsibilities are integral to the way we operate. We ensure the welfare
of communities, the protection of ecosystems and the safeguard of workforce in carrying out all our activities.
As a sociably responsible company, we conduct Initial Environment Examination / Environment Impact Assessment Studies before the commencement of new projects and ensure that the project activities are
undertaken as proposed and described in the Environment Reports and adopt the recommended mitigation
and environmental management plans so that the new project do not result in any long term or significant
impacts on the local community or the physical and biological environment of the project area.
Due to the nature and scale of our activities, some Health, Safety and Environmental risks are associated with
our operations. In order to manage these risks as low as reasonably practical, various control measures are
adopted. To continuously improve our HSE performance, all these controls are further translated into
objectives, targets and programs as per the requirements of ISO 14001 and OHSAS 18001 systems. We carry
out various activities in the field which involves risks as well but we endeavour to perform our activities in
such a manner that we either eliminate or minimize these risks to the lowest. Thus we believe that HSE
protection is a shared responsibility across the company.
We strongly believe that HSE training is the first line of defense against accidents. The company has adopted
a systematic and pro-active behavioral program that provides appropriate HSE training and encourages
participation of all employees to safely perform their duties with the objective of preventing occupational
injuries, illness, losses due to accidents, and protection of environment. Early detection of emergency or
disaster situations is essential in minimizing injury to personnel and property damage. We ensure that
Emergency Response Plans for any disaster effectively minimize confusion and reaction time and for that we
provide specific ER document for each location. In addition, area-specific HSE Monitoring Plans are well
established and used for compliance evaluation. The Internal HSE Audits are conducted on regular basis for
each location on mandatory basis to fulfill the requirements of international standards. The Internal HSE
Auditors are selected from different organizational functions based on their experience and professional skills. The Internal HSE Auditors are trained
on auditing skills by conducting internal training sessions.
