HEALTH AND SAFETY
Our strategic framework is based on the rigorous and systematic implementation of prevention and promotion tools, generating a culture of personal responsibility whose pillars are identifying and managing dangers, observing tasks, ceasing unsafe activities, ensuring operations by applying best industry practices, and analyzing incidents.
We align with the legislation of each of the countries where we operate and apply the best national and international standards that allow us to achieve a world-class operation, in which our workers are represented in joint committees that help to monitor and guide our programs. We have joint health and safety committees in Colombia, Chile and Peru, made up of representatives of the workers and the Company, for a total of 44 workers who actively participate (22 representatives of the Company and 22 representatives of the workers).

During 2019, the growth in drilling and completion activities led to more equipment and personnel in our operations, which in turn increased the degree of exposure to incidents and prevented us from reaching the goal set for lost-time incidents (LTIR).
With the implementation of the Company’s prevention programs, at the end of the year we only registered four (4) lost-time events. All the people affected by the events returned to work and carried out their work without any restrictions.
