At FourQuest Energy, we promote a culture of safety within our organization and integrate prevention measures into all business strategies, processes, and performance measures.
Our risk assessments include identifying all possible hazards, routes of exposure, an assessment of the degree of severity, and likelihood of occurrence. We believe that the most important step in eliminating possible incidents is to create an in-depth risk assessment. Our operations department, HSE department and engineering department collaborate to eliminate and/or control hazards to keep our employees as safe as possible.
It is FourQuest Energy’s policy to implement a systematic process for identification and control of hazards specific to the services our company provides.
We have recognized our top 10 risks and are raising our employees’ awareness by implementing FQE’s 10 Quest for Zero Rules to assist us in reaching our goal of zero incidents and illnesses.
