Safe Operations

Hours of Safety training in 2015

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 protect our people. We want to ensure our workers, and the people impacted by our operations, arrive home safely and healthy at the end of each day.

With this top priority in mind, 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 13 Key Corporate Elements in support of 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.

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. Our leadership team believes that every job can and must be done safely and that everyone is accountable for safety performance.  We also believe 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. 

Total Recordable Injury Frequency (TRIF) 0.645 0.653 0.701
CAPP Recordable Injury 0.72 0.71 0

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.
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, 2016.
(4)  As of 2015, CAPP no longer provides TRIF data.
(5) TRIF data includes Canada and US frequency from 2015 onward. Canada only data in 2013 and 2014.


Crescent Point’s 2015 total recordable injury frequency (TRIF) increased 19 percent from 2014. We take this result seriously and are pursuing numerous initiatives to improve safety performance, including increasing awareness of our safety policies and rolling out new training and orientation programs.

Orientation and Training

Crescent Point requires that all site workers and contractors complete the following minimum safety training: Crescent Point General Safety Orientation, H2S Alive, First Aid / CPR and WHMIS 2015.

In 2015, Crescent Point launched an initiative to increase safety awareness in our field operations and ensure workers are doing all they can to prevent potential incidents during the underground excavation process. Throughout the year, the Company completed several audits as well as face-to-face training and orientations that reached over 1,000 workers and 99 third-party companies. Our underground facilities training and orientation efforts are ongoing in 2016 to reinforce our goal of an incident-free workplace.
