SUSTAINABLE DEVELOPMENT GOALS

Pursuing continuous improvement: promoting and developing a safety culture; strengthening the HSE audit planning system.
Improving the Total Recordable Incident Frequency Rate (TRIFR).
A real value at Saipem and a key part of our business model

The safety of all people involved in our operations is a priority objective which is constantly monitored and guaranteed in the management of our Company’s activities by means of an integrated HSE management system. We also define a safety objectives plan every year at corporate, division and operating company level.

We have launched several awareness campaigns and initiatives over the years with the purpose of spreading a deeper and more entrenched safety culture. A few examples follow:

LEADERSHIP IN HEALTH & SAFETY (LiHS)

The LiHS programme is a cultural change programme to reduce accidents. During its 10 years of implementation, the LiHS programme has been applied successfully not only at Saipem, but also at many other organisations, which have implemented it to initiate a safety cultural change within their company.

+7,000 LiHS events organised between 2007-2017

SCHIEDAM TRAINING CENTRE

Set up in 2012 in Schiedam (the Netherlands) to capitalize on Saipem’s versatile offshore crane simulator and to coordinate complex HSE training courses, this traditional training facility has transformed into a competence hub and catalyser. It set up and delivered training programmes such as ‘Young HSE technicians training programmes’ and ‘Young installation engineers competence programmes’.

+4,000 employees have attended Schiedam’s training courses worldwide

ITALIA LOVES SICUREZZA (ILS)

ILS is a movement aimed at changing the way of communicating about health and safety through its ongoing activities. We have contributed to this Italian movement by organizing initiatives to spread a new HSE culture in Italy using unconventional communication tools that can leverage the emotional sphere.

SAIPEM SAFETY MILESTONES

The We Want Zero (WWZ) and the Life Saving Rules (LSR) campaign are two milestones of the Saipem safety culture. The WWZ is a programme that, since 2014, has aimed to reduce fatal accidents to zero. The LSR is the customised gold standard for safety compliance within our industry. Since its launch in late 2015, our people, subcontractors and client personnel from 126 different projects and sites within the Saipem world have benefited from this campaign.

SAFETY AS A FAMILY HABIT

A new initiative, Family Safety Day, was launched in late 2017 in Saudi Arabia to convey a robust message regarding the importance of Health, Safety and the Environment, engaging the families of personnel in the company’s safety culture. The objective of the event was to promote safety leadership among all employees and their family members.

+200 Employees participated in the Family Safety Day in Saudi Arabia

GROWING NEW LEADERS IN H&S

For the 2017-2018 school year, through the LHS Foundation, we have confirmed our commitment to spreading a culture of health and safety in schools in Milan (Italy) by offering the educational programme ‘Growing New Leaders in Safety’, aimed at sensitising children and middle schoolers to the fact that they can influence others to adopt healthier and safer behaviours.
