At SWN, the most important thing we can achieve each day is for everyone associated with our activities to return home safely. This commitment to safeguarding our employees, contractors and the communities where we operate, as well as being a good steward of the environment, is a core value of SWN and underpins everything we do.
SWN leaders, including senior management, are evaluated on and held accountable for the health, safety and environmental (HSE) performance of their teams. We include HSE considerations in every business decision we make, and they are never secondary to commercial concerns.
HSE Programs and Training
In 2019, we enhanced our HSE programs in furtherance of our pursuit of zero safety incidents. Increased leadership training and leader field visits was a particular focus, as we sought to fortify and enhance our safety culture by allowing leaders to identify hazards, directly engage with field staff and better understand conditions in the field and the concerns of frontline personnel.
Metrics and Performance
We measure company HSE performance using numerous leading and lagging indicators, and all SWN employees and contractors are evaluated on and held accountable for HSE performance. In 2019, we implemented Process Safety Event Rate (PSER) goals for each of our operating divisions, focused on the design and engineering of our facilities.
Health and Well-Being
Through our The Right You program, SWN promotes employee health and well-being in five focus areas: physical, mental, financial, social and community.
