Consistent, strong safety performance is driven by Enerflex’s management team and employees within the Company. The Company focuses on ensuring that we have a continuously improving safety culture. Enerflex is demonstrably achieving improved safety performance over successive years. In 2016 the Company’s total recordable injury rate (“TRIR”), one of the key measures of safety performance that provides comparability to other companies, was 0.65.
Enerflex has maintained its Certificate of Recognition (COR), issued by the Province of Alberta, where the Company is headquartered. A COR indicates that an employer has implemented a recognized safety management system. Maintaining this COR requires constant internal and external safety audits. Because Alberta has among the world’s best safety standards for the oil and natural gas production and services sector, a COR-compatible system provides a strong working framework for the Company’s worldwide safety management approach. Enerflex's COR audit of its Canadian operations took place in 2016, with the business scoring an average of over 96%.
Enerflex applies these high safety standards and sophisticated management systems within every facility in which it operates, globally. This requires the sincere commitment and continued engagement, guided by a vision and set of values that is understood and embraced by all. The Company performs internal safety system audits annually, as well as comprehensive external audits ensuring that each Enerflex location across our seven operating regions meets or exceeds industry standards and the Company’s HSE policy.
Each region has a local HSE team and leadership which oversee the activities, programs and initiatives within that region. Together with the senior management team they provide strategic HSE direction, guidance for regional management, project performance reviews and the approvals for these initiatives. The Enerflex Executive Management Team actively participates in the HSE programs by providing direction and reviewing the performance of the HSE management systems. This Management team along with the HSE teams constantly reviews all recordable injuries, near misses, leading and lagging indicators and discusses continual improvements for the HSE program.
