Occupational Safety Risk Management

The activities of large-scale production are always associated with the risks of emergency situations that can threaten the life and health of people, have a negative impact on the environment, damage material assets and the reputation of the company. An effective risk management system allows JSC Gazpromneft MZSM to minimize the risk.

Risk Management

The JSC Gazpromneft MZSM uses a unified approach to risk management, which is combined with unified tools and analysis methods to construct the Risk Management and Internal Control System (RMS and VC). Risk management for occupational safety is an important component of this system. RMS and VK are used to track all of the company’s major operations. New assets are also promptly added to the system’s perimeter.

In 2018, JSC Gazpromneft MZSM began transforming the industrial safety system, adopting a risk-based approach as a basis. To manage the key risks of industrial safety, the company has identified 31 scenarios of incidents with catastrophic consequences, the risks of which must be prevented in the first place. For these scenarios, models of causal relationships have been developed that reflect the relationship between prerequisites, a possible incident and its consequences, as well as selected the most effective barriers – measures that reduce the likelihood of an incident or mitigate its consequences. A corporate-wide Safety Framework initiative is in place at all JSC Gazpromneft MZSM properties to introduce these barriers. An impartial examination verifies the quality of the actual installation of barriers at the company’s businesses.

The results of the implementation of barriers are displayed on a single corporate dashboard, which allows managers of different levels to conduct an objective assessment of the state of affairs in the field of security at specific facilities and control the reduction of key risks.JSC Gazpromneft MZSM is also working on defining a set of best available practices for managing industrial safety risks associated with the operational specifics of an asset. For this, registers of the most significant IS risks are formed in each asset, and action plans for their minimization are determined and implemented.
