Health Safety and Environment (HSE)

Health, Safety & Environment (HSE) is a core value in all the operations and endevors of South West Pinnacle Exploration Limited. At SWPE, HSE is interwoven in all our activities via our employees, contractors and their workforce, all working together – efficiently and effectively - with the ultimate objective to create a safe and healthy environment in and around our workplace. SWPE believes that a healthy workforce which adopts safe working practices not only contributes to itself and its organization but also to its surrounding environment and society as a whole. In order to bring this into practice, the Company ensures the following:


In order to have a healthy workforce and a healthy “work life balance”, SWPE conducts Pre-employment medical check- ups and post employment medical check- ups (every two years) and also has proper Crew-Roaster & Shift-wise duty in place.

Some of these trainings are : Emergency Rescue (ER), Work at Height (WAH), Confined Space Entry (CSE), First Aid Training (FAT), Fire Fighting Training (FFT) etc. which are imparted by certified trainers. Successive refresher OJT (on the job training) & HSE Trainings are conducted and are also reviewed through presentation and mock drills from time to time, so as to re-enforce the importance of safety. In order to avoid accidents & injuries , suitable PPE (Personal Protective Equipment) are provided not only to SWPE employees who are deployed at the work sites but also to the contractor’s work force and any guests/customers, present at the work site .

  • Proper disposal of oil & lubricants at the worksites, so as to minimize their ground seepage.
  • Proper re- habilitation of drilling sites after the completion of drilling operations, by plugging the drill holes, back filling the open pits and disposal of the waste, as created during the operations.
  • Minimizing the air & noise pollution by using mufflers and smoke arrestors in the DG sets, as deployed at the site
    • Apart from the above the Company has adopted & successfully implemented the following safety initiatives, both as preventive and corrective measures for having “Safe Working Culture” in the organization.
  • Incident/Accident Reporting System, Investigation & Corrective Action,
  • Inspections, Audits & Third Party Inspections
  • Function & Pressure Testing, Hydro Testing, Proper Maintenance of equipments & machinery
