Introduction to health and safety

QHSE at Nostrum focuses on improving the management and mitigation of risks relating to health, safety and the environment, and preventing any injury or ill health to employees. QHSE management is a priority to Nostrum as it is key to the sustainability and success of our business and therefore we constantly seek to develop programmes to improve our QHSE standards. The new health and safety measures given below reflect our e orts to improve QHSE reporting standards.

QHSE reporting

Nostrum has developed a simple system for employees to report hazards and unsafe behaviour to management. Reporting forms are available to all employees, in Kazakh, Russian and English, and also encourage feedback on how Nostrum should continue to improve its QHSE practices. This is being launched in 2017 and will allow for data to be collected centrally and for follow-up action to be coordinated more e ciently.

2018 targets and campaigns

CSR is a central tenet of Nostrum’s business ethic. We recognise that we need to ensure that high standards of QHSE are established and maintained. We are also cognisant that, due to the nature of the Oil & Gas industry, our business must operate with the right safeguards to prevent damage to the environment and danger to our employees.
