LIFE SAVING RULES
PDO’s 12 Life
Saving Rules are the next step in our Goal Zero Journey. These rules have
been selected because they represent those activities where non-compliance
has the highest likelihood to result in death or serious injury, the Life
Saving Rules apply to everyone and all operations under PDO’s operational
Most people comply with them every day – but there are still breaches taking
The Life Saving Rules set out clear and simple “dos” and “don’ts” covering
activities with the highest potential safety risk. They help to make sure that
rules are followed and people are protected. We are determined to save lives.
In the coming months, everyone – employees and the contractor community –
will be briefed on the Life Saving Rules at team and site meetings.
The Rules will be fully enforced from July 1, 2009.
That everyone in the organization (PDO and Contractors) understands and
abides by the Life Saving Rules.
There are serious consequences associated with breaking a Life Saving Rule.

- If a rule-breaker is aware of the Life Saving Rule or required procedure
through training, experience or communication, and did not comply, the maximum
appropriate disciplinary action will be applied: up to and including termination
of employment for PDO employees; or removal from site and disqualification from
future PDO work for employees of contractors or sub-contractors.
- If a supervisor sets the conditions for rule-breaking, or fails to follow
through if one is broken, maximum appropriate disciplinary action will apply.
