Health & Safety
Cheniere is committed to conducting business in a way that protects the safety and well-being of all personnel, customers, and others on-site or affected by our operations.
A portion of executives' annual cash incentives are tied to quantifiable safety goals, in terms of total recordable incident rate (TRIR) and lost time incident rate (LTIR). Additionally, a portion is tied to compliance with applicable laws and regulations as well as a commitment to safety, construction management, and operational effectiveness.
In furtherance of our core values, Cheniere has adopted the following policies and procedures related to health and safety:
- Generative safety culture where no job is so important that it cannot be done safely
- Performance measurement to drive continual improvement towards eliminating injuries and ill-health
- Proactive identification and management of risk
- Compliance with applicable legal and regulatory requirements
- Conformance with industry standards
- Proactive committed leadership and individual accountability for health and safety
- Employee engagement
- Training and competence in safe work practices and procedures
- Assurance assessments and reviews
- Investigation of health and safety incidents and the implementation of lessons learned
- Integration of health and safety into all aspects of the business
In 2018, we outperformed our enterprise-wide safety targets for TRIR and LTIR with both employees and contractors. We have established more aggressive safety targets for 2019 to drive continuous improvement. Our annual incentive program for all employees and executives is tied to safety performance.
