Health

As a responsible operator, Marathon Oil collaborates with community leaders where we operate to recognize and advance public health initiatives that promote the common good and protect the public.

Ongoing initiatives in Equatorial Guinea include the Bioko Island Malaria Control Project and related vaccine trials and maternal and child health programs. In addition, we have a corporate partnership with the American Heart Association to spread awareness about cardiovascular health, a major cause of death in the U.S. and other operating areas. Under the Responsible Operations Management Systems (ROMS), Marathon Oil identifies and addresses key health challenges including:

  • Occupational hygiene and exposure control
  • Medical emergency management
  • Fitness-for-duty and medical surveillance
  • Public and community health impacts
  • Via ROMS, identified health-related risks for each asset are reviewed and prioritized annually for mitigation.

Our exposure assessment process builds upon and aligns with the HES&S risk assessment process. The focus is on the identification, recognition, evaluation and control of chemical, physical and biological exposure risks that may be present in our workplace. We use qualitative assessment techniques to identify and risk rank potential exposure hazards and then apply quantitative assessment (industrial hygiene monitoring) to systematically evaluate, understand and manage workplace exposure risks.
