“I need and request all PDO and contracting communities to demonstrate the highest level and due diligence towards all HSE requirements. Our
journey towards ‘Goal Zero’ can never be relaxed and our focus to protect people, assets and the environment must be maintained at all times.
I am very pleased to see the improved performance we achieved in 2013. Let’s maintain this momentum of improvement and continue to build on
established great practices and learnings in the oil and gas industry within and outside Oman. The Life Saving Rules, underpinned by the Golden Rules,
provide a solid foundation to ensure that we meet our HSE commitments in managing the main risk areas of road safety, worksite hazards, asset
integrity and process safety. I, therefore, expect all PDO and contractor staff to comply with the Life Saving Rules and the Golden Rules as integral to
all we do in our daily operations and activities.
The 2014 HSE plan highlights our focus areas and I look to your commitment and support, as you can be sure of mine, to address key actions and
opportunities for further improvements in our safety, occupational health and environmental performance.”
