١٫٤ Management of Health, Safety and Environment
١٫٤٫١ HSE Management Philosophy
HSE Management is :
# an effort to prevent accidents and minimize losses. # an integral part of our business, and is of equal importance to service quality, motivation and
profitability. There is a permanent interaction between HSE performance, operation, efficiency,
personnel motivation, morale and financial success.
# A line management responsibility. As illustrated in the organization charts, the HSE Departments
are a specialized function assisting the line management to adequately address HSE issues. To
manage HSE adequately the line manager is supported by DOSCO Personnel and by the
President. The guidelines are communicated to each project and rig.
1.4.2 Specific HSE Plans
# Specific HSE plans shall be established by the HSE Director and rig manager at the beginning of
the year and at the start of major projects. Validity of such plan is one year or for the duration of the
project. Rig specific HSE plans shall be approved by the Rig Manager and the Person-In-Charge
١٫٤٫٣ Communication
١٫٤٫٣٫١ Communication of HSE Plans When approved, the HSE plans will be communicated to all
relevant DOSCO Personnel. The plans shall be posted at the respective worksites. Techniques like
meetings, slide presentations, videos, etc., will be used to inform the relevant DOSCO personnel.
The HSE plans shall be communicated to the Client.
١٫٤٫٣٫٢ Other communication techniques
a.) HSE Alerts are issued to advice
Rig personnel of an immediate danger. It recognizes a serious deficiency in our equipment,
procedures or HSE systems.
An alert must reach the rig and be acted upon on an urgent basis. The PIC shall confirm that action
had been taken. The alert is to be filed on the rig in a ٣-ring binder called “HSE Alerts”,
b.) HSE Memorandum will be sent to PIC:
 # to notify DOSCO personnel on HSE statistics,
# sharing lessons learned from accidents, through detailed accident investigation,
# Informing him / her on new HSE techniques and equipment, and advertising new HSE
approaches successfully implemented on specific rigs.

١٫٤٫٤ Reporting
Reporting is required to:
# Communicate the information through line management, for analysis and action,
# Circulate the information of a general interest and nature within DOSCO and its personnel,
# Monitor the implementation of actions,
#Increase the level of HSE expertise throughout DOSCO
### HSE reporting procedures within DOSCO are:
a) At Rig Level:
١) Accident Report,
٢) Accident Analysis Report,
٣) Report Minutes of Rig HSE Meetings.
b) At Headquarters (HQS) Level:
١) Accident Review,
٢) Management Inquiry for Catastrophic Accident,
٣) Project/Rig HSE Plan Adjustment,
٤) HQS , HSE Monthly Report.
١٫٤٫٥ Hardware Inspection and Compliance Assessment
Hardware inspection shall be carried out on the rig site by the PIC or his designate, to verify
correct condition of equipment.
Compliance assessment shall be carried out on the rig site by the HSE Director or his designate, to
verify that the Policies and Procedures are correctly understood and complied with.
By comparing actual HSE results to the HSE objectives, we can determine the adequacy of the
plans put in place.
١٫٤٫٥٫١ Conflict
Wherever and whenever DOSCO HSE policies and procedures differ from the applicable
regulations in the area of operations; the most stringent of such requirements shall apply.
When an operation is asked to deviate from DOSCO HSE policies and procedures, a request of
exemption shall be placed and work shall not commence until the exemption is granted by the

## Approved Personnel
Any person officially appointed in writing by the PIC (or higher authority) to carry out a specific
## Accident

occurring in circumstances considered under DOSCO ’s direct control.
A reportable accident shall be reported on HSE accident report form.
## Lost Time Injury (LTI)
Any work related injury resulting from a reportable accident that prevents the victim from
continuing in the next following shift the same job that he was performing before the injury.
Logistical delay for the purpose of medical examination shall not be taken into account. If the injury happens just before the victim goes on vacation and a medical examination reveals later
on that the victim is unfit for work, the injury is a LTI.
If the victim resumed work normally after the injury, but later on, as a consequence of the same
injury, has to be put off work or on light duty, the injury shall be reclassified as a LTI.
## Non-Lost Time Injury (NLTI)
Any work related injury, which is not a LTI.
## Light Duty (LD)
Any work performed by a person that does not include all the normal duties of the regular job.
## Days without Lost Time Injury (DWLTI)
Number of consecutive days worked without a LTI. The very first day worked following a lost
time injury is numbered “day # ١”.
## Frozen DWLTI
Any time a rig is officially stacked (when the crew is partially or completely removed, preventing
the rig from performing normal operations like drilling or rig move), the count of DWLTI is stopped
and frozen until the crews necessary to recommence the normal operation return to the rig.
## Work Related Injury
Any injury occurring during working hours. Also includes outside work hours injury when occurring in
circumstances considered under DOSCO ’s direct control.
## Non Work Related Injury
Any injury which is not a work related injury.
## Occupational Illness
Any work related illness resulting in days away from work, days of restricted work activity, job
transfer, medical treatment or abnormal health condition. The basic difference between injury and
illness is the single event concept.
If the damage resulted from something that happened in one instant, it is an injury.
If it resulted from prolonged or multiple exposure to a hazardous substance or environmental factor,
it is an illness.
## Permanent Partial Disability Any injury, which results in the complete loss, or permanent loss of use, of any part of the body, or
any impairment of functions of parts of the body. The number of days lost is based upon the ANSI
(American National Standard Institute) tables and not upon the number of days of unfitness.
## Life Loss
The number of days lost allocated is ٦٠٠٠. It is counted as an LTI.
## Days Lost
It represents, in the case of a reportable accident, either the number of days of unfitness for
work as per Doctor’s certificate, or the number of days allocated in case of a permanent disability
(partial or total), or death.
## LTI Frequency Rate
Number of LTI’s per million of manhours worked. It is calculated as followsNbr of LTI’s x ١،٠٠٠،٠٠٠
## LTI Severity Rate
