Safety and Service quality

Our most important objective is the safety of our people, our clients, the environment and the communities in which we operate.

We saw an 18% reduction in the lost-time incident rate (LTIR)

By continuing to embed the Eight GEMS (Getting Everyone Managing Safety) into our organizational culture, we have improved our employees’ ability to identify hazards, manage risk and reduce incidents.

Achieving a safe and healthy working environment is only possible when our employees take personal responsibility for meeting the highest safety standards.

Our shared commitment to Service Quality, Health, Safety, Security and Environment (QHSSE) excellence is reflected in the outstanding safety performance Weatherford recorded in 2014.

Our people are at the core of consistently delivering quality products and services. Our Operational Excellence and Performance System (OEPS) and standards empower our employees to deliver on their commitments to our clients, their co-workers and our Company.

Ensuring Service Quality Globally

We introduced OEPSonline - a new internal web portal housing documents, guides, standards, forms and tools designed to support all Weatherford operations. This information hub ensures reliable best-in-class tools and processes meeting the most stringent standards. This system is an innovative forerunner unlike any in our industry.

Employee safety during lifting operations continues to be a priority for Weatherford and the entire industry. One of our Eight GEMS is dedicated to spreading awareness of safe lifting practices internally. As such, every Weatherford employee participated in our manager-led “Stand-Up for Safe Lifting” global awareness campaign. Upon conclusion, each employee committed to comply with safe lifting procedures for themselves and for their colleagues.
