Operational and Human Safety

Target Zero Defines Our Approach to HSEQ

Superior Energy is committed to the health, safety, and wellness of our employees. We focus on creating a strong and inclusive workplace culture. We then apply the same values in building and maintaining strong relationships in the communities where we operate. 

Safety to the Core

We protect the safety and health of ourselves, our fellow employees, and those with whom we do business. During onboarding, new employees learn about our principles and how to put them into practice, and safety materials are refreshed periodically. Everyone in the company has Stop Work Authority, a key measure for preventing unsafe actions.

Health, Safety, Environment and Quality (HSEQ) 

Superior Energy is committed to the health, safety, and wellness of our employees. We track and maintain key safety metrics, which senior management reviews periodically. Continued improvement in Health, Safety, Environment, and Quality (“HSEQ”) is the expectation of every employee, and we manage those efforts with thoughtful, instructive programs such as our Target Zero Management System, discussed below.

Target Zero Defines Our Approach 

Our Target Zero Safety Management System is Superior’s global approach to HSEQ management and directly supports two Shared Core Values – Safety and Citizenship. Since 2012, this program has successfully ensured compliance with company objectives, applicable regulations, and client HSEQ requirements. HSEQ expectations are implemented throughout our global operations and include a framework and process requirements for development, assessment, and continuous improvement.

Emergency Response and Preparedness

To ensure our employees are equipped to handle emergencies before they arise, Superior Energy’s Emergency Response and Preparedness policy establishes relevant requirements for each location.

Climate-Related Risks

Superior Energy operates in an industry that can be impacted by extreme weather events, climate risks, and associated safety issues. As an organization with a Major Incident Response Plan in place, we can quickly adapt to support our portfolio of brands — support that includes regional emergency preparedness and protocols. For example, in emergency situations where normal means of communication are disrupted, employees can utilize the Emergency Hotline to maintain contact with their division. We also have regional emergency action plans, heat alert programs, and training to reinforce employee health and safety.  

For complete information on these and other risks and disclosures, please refer to our Annual Report on Form 10K for the year ended December 31, 2023.
