Safe Operations


Formal Safety Meetings conducted in 2016

Crescent Point is committed to protecting the health and safety of employees, contractors, stakeholders and the public. We strive to conduct our business in a responsible manner to prevent incidents and ensure the safety of all stakeholders. Our prime objective is to make certain that our workers and the people potentially impacted by our operations arrive home safely and healthy at the end of each day.

With safety being at the core of our values, we have established effective policies, systems and procedures designed to identify, eliminate or mitigate health and safety risks. Our detailed Operations Management System (OMS) contains the following 13 Key Corporate Elements that support the Company’s Health, Safety and Environmental Protection Policy.

These Key Corporate Elements contain numerous standards outlining the expectations we have of our employees and contractors while executing our business activities.

2016 Successes2017 Targets
  • Reduce TRIF by 7% over 2015
  • Achieved 95.5% compliance factor on investigations being completed on time, exceeding our goal of 85%
  • Added a new online Ground Distrubance Orientation for all contractors (Canada)
  • Rolled out a new Working Alone program and phone app (Canada)
  • Reduce TRIF by a further 2% over 2016
  • Develop and implement a plan to reduce Serious Incident Frequency
  • Elevate and track visible safety leadership in the field
  • Continue the development of our OMS in Canada and the US

Crescent Point maintains a Health, Safety and Environment Committee within its board of directors to oversee the implementation of these policies, systems and procedures. This committee meets quarterly, and as required, to review health, safety and environmental matters as well as performance. Our leadership team believes that every job can and must be done safely, that everyone is accountable for safety performance and that all employees have the right – in fact, the obligation – to refuse unsafe conditions and voice concerns about potential hazards.  At Crescent Point, we encourage our employees to take charge and stay safe. In 2016, we distributed a Site Safety Assessment card to all field employees and contractors. The card serves as a reminder to slow down, identify risks and ensure that a worker knows they can stop a job at any time should they feel unsafe.

Total Recordable Injury Frequency (TRIF)0.6530.7760.6550.640
CAPP Recordable Injury Frequency0.710000

Notes to Injury Frequency Graphs:

(1) Based on the definition provided by the Canadian Association of Petroleum Producers, recordable injuries include total permanent disabilities, lost work day cases, restricted work cases, medical treatment cases and fatalities.
(2) Estimation of contractor hours is based on net operation and net capital expenditures using the Canadian Association of Petroleum Producers 2008 conversion factors for contractors working in Canada.
(3) Lost time injury frequency and recordable injury frequency rates were calculated based upon known and recorded injuries as of January 1, 2017.
(4) As of 2015, CAPP no longer provides TRIF data.
(5) TRIF data includes Canada and US frequency from 2015 onward. Canada only in 2014.

In 2016, Crescent Point implemented a working alone safety tool that connects an employee’s device to a 24 hour monitoring system that will provide the assistance necessary should an incident occur. The app allows employees who are working alone, after hours or in potentially hazardous conditions to check-in, set an end-of-shift time, set a safety timer for hazardous situations, request assistance or trigger an alert. In the event that an employee is unable to touch base after their timer has expired, the app will automatically trigger an alert and the call centre will respond appropriately.

The app includes a safe driving component that logs an employee’s location to ensure a timely and accurate response in the case of an accident. In order to remain compliant with our Distracted Driving Policy, the app automatically updates the driver’s location every five minutes allowing the driver to remain off of their device while driving. The app is available to all employees including those visiting our field sites from other offices.

Orientation and Training

Crescent Point requires all site workers and contractors complete the following minimum safety training: Crescent Point General Safety Orientation, H2S Alive, First Aid / CPR and WHMIS 2016.

Last year, we made a new online Ground Disturbance Orientation available to all contractors and employees. We require that any contractor or employee involved in a ground disturbance complete this orientation every three years. In 2016, 4682 contractors and employees completed the online orientation.

Our orientation and training initiatives are ongoing in 2017 as we continue to communicate Crescent Point’s safety culture and work towards our vision of zero incidents.
