All employees and contractors on Anadarko locations globally are authorized to exercise Stop Work Authority to communicate safety concerns.
In 2018, our combined contractor and employee total recordable incident rate (TRIR) (recordable incidents per 100 workers) for the year was an industry-leading 0.19.
At Anadarko, safety is built into our corporate performance goals. Our annual compensation program is funded with a corporate performance multiplier. The program is based on the company's adherence to our core values and pre-defined operational, financial and safety goals set by our Board of Directors.
Our approach to safety is focused on continuous improvement of HSE performance as we strive for zero contractor and employee incidents throughout all of our workplaces.
Vehicle safety is an important part of our safety program. Anadarko sets the guidelines and expectations for operating company vehicles in our Vehicle Safety Policy, which states that all company vehicles will be operated in a safe manner.
Vehicle incidents is a closely tracked metric. The HSE staff and Operational teams work together to evaluate the cause of all vehicle incidents and develop practices to reduce them.
The Safety team works with Operations, Legal and other groups to investigate any incident. The team evaluates the data for key trends and promptly develops mitigating strategies. There are numerous examples of these strategies, including:
The Safety team evaluates the efficacy of these strategies, engages with peer companies to learn best practices and works through industry groups to strengthen federal and state safety regulations.
Safety Data Sheets (SDS) cover health and safety aspects of products, such as crude oil, natural gas and condensate.
Anadarko created a dedicated HSE Process Safety team in 2016 to reinforce our commitment to continual improvement. This team developed processes, procedures and other tools to identify, assess and mitigate risk.
A succinct “purpose statement” defines the meaning and benefits of process safety at Anadarko. We're currently building a communication strategy to increase awareness across the company of the resources available for support.

Level 1: a policy that defines the expectations and boundaries for the Company’s activitiesLevel 2: process or program documents that describe “what happens” within the organization to accomplish the policiesLevel 3: procedures or “how-to” step-by-step instructions that implement the programs and processesLevel 4: tools, forms or templates teams develop to fulfill the procedures
We formed a project team that's charged with developing, delivering and implementing a single, consistent and standardized Anadarko Management System (AMS) program for the company. Members from all Integrated Asset Teams and Service Groups make up this project team.
The AMS Level 1 policy:
We are using existing AMS documents developed by our operating entities to the extent practicable. The Level 1 document identifies 10 foundational elements, which are used to bolster efforts to assure safe and environmentally competent operations. The Level 1, 2 and 3 documents also provide a roadmap for regulatory compliance.
The AMS objective described in the Level 1 document is that we:
