Caring for people

Safety, health, and well-being


In our 2024-2028+ Strategic Plan, we maintain respect for life, people, and the environment as one of our values. Therefore, we work constantly to occupy a position of excellence in HSE in our segment of activity with safety, respect for the environment and full attention to people, pursuing a Total Recordable Injury Rate (TRIR) below 0.7 and zero  fatalities.


Furthermore, we integrated ESG (environmental, social and governance) elements into our plan into a single vision, summarizing our position on the subject. More than a concept, ESG is a risk/return view of how the company should act to mitigate risks and ensure its sustainability for the future, using the best environmental, social and governance practices.


Our ESG diagram guides planning and engagement with stakeholders and is aligned with our strategic elements and goals. In this theme, one of the commitments made the promotion of safe operations, based on the protection of life and the promotion of the well-being of our more than 40,000 employees. Our goal is that, at the end of their workday, each employee can return healthy and safe to their family, and for this reason, in October 2016, we launched the Commitment to Life Program. The Program is made up of structuring projects defined based on critical analysis of HSE management, with reference to best market practices, and, in its seventh cycle, initiated and developed throughout 2023, we can highlight the following actions:


At the moment, our more than 40,000 employees (100%) are covered by our HSE management system. Our service providers also use this system when they are on the company's facilities and are even evaluated by the HSE Management Assessment Process (HSE-MAP).


We take care of workers' health 365 days a year, going far beyond meeting legal occupational health requirements. We are with employees from the first step of their health journey in the company, through the promotion, prevention, and preservation of physical, mental, and social well-being, aiming for healthy and productive work environments.


We offer continuous health actions that contribute to the adoption of healthy attitudes and behaviors, bringing employees to the center of care. Our health promotion programs include individual, collective and environmental actions. Among them, we highlight actions of: Health Education; Prevention and Control of Chronic Noncommunicable Diseases (NCDs); Promotion of Healthy Eating; Promotion of Physical Activity; Prevention, Approach and Monitoring of Treatment of Problems related to the Use of Alcohol, Tobacco, and Other Drugs; Pregnancy and Lactation Care; and Mental Health Promotion.


Aiming at the continuous improvement of our HSE management system, specific structuring programs and initiatives are developed, such as the
Commitment to Life Program, the Golden Rules, and the Fundamentals of Process Safety.


Since the launch of the first Commitment to Life Program in 2016, we had a significant reduction in the Total Recordable Injury Rate (TRIR) from 2.15 to 0.80. We are working to have a high-performance culture, which demands health, respect for the environment and safety.

In order to support the safety culture, in 2016, ten safety Golden Rules were defined based on the most recurring accidents in the oil and gas industry and our history. Training on the Golden Rules is mandatory for all our employees in Brazil and abroad.




Occupational health and safety indicators meet industry standards and practices. To prevent accidents, we comply with regulations and adopt strict operating standards and procedures. We are trained to operate safely, and in case of any doubts during the execution of a procedure, we are instructed to stop it immediately.
