Promoting Safe and Inclusive Workplaces
We work to provide safe workplaces and focus on empowering an inclusive and talented workforce that drives our business success.

We are proud to play a role in maintaining U.S. energy security and to providing the reliable, affordable energy that the world needs. Being a safe, responsible operator with a team of the best and brightest people is critical to earning our license to operate and helps us create long-term value for shareholders.

We are defined by our corporate values: collaborate, take ownership, be bold and deliver results, and our team delivers on these values daily. We attract, develop and engage a diverse, empowered and talented workforce and work together as ‘One Team.’

2022 Safety Metrics

Given the intense increase in demand for reliable, low-cost energy in 2022, our employees and contractors worked 24 million hours, up from 16 million hours in 2021. Our total recordable incident rate (TRIR) is one of the metrics we use to measure our success in providing a safe working environment and is linked directly to compensation outcomes.

Despite the tumultuous economic, workforce and operational landscape in 2022, teams across the company gave their all to safety and we’re proud to have achieved our third-best year in company history for TRIR. Our combined TRIR for both employees and contractors was 0.30 in 2022 compared to 0.29 in 2021. Employees and contractors are expected to report all incidents, including “near misses.” In 2022, our near-miss frequency rate was approximately 6.39, a significant decrease from 9.09 in 2021.

  • ᵃ TRIR = Incidents x 200,000 / Work Hours.
