"Accidents not only hurt people, but reduce our productivity, lower our reliability and damage our image. At a time when our organization takes on the greatest challenges on the market, we cannot accept such consequences. We are convinced that only by providing the highest level of work safety practises we can provide top-level service to our customers, commitment to the employees and meet the objectives."
Pergemine develops the activities pertaining to its mission by pursuing excellence and promoting protection of its workers’ Health and Safety. The fundamental principles are that:
Pergemine acknowledges that the protection of the health of its employees and collaborators, as well as that of everyone involved in its activities in various capacities, is integral part of the company’s objectives and programmes. Management and every operational area are responsible and made aware regard achieving high-level results.
Health is top priority and an essential parameter to reach higher quality in our performance. “Medical surveillance”, in constant collaboration with the “Competent Physician” and the Protection and Prevention Services, based on the specific knowledge of the production units and hazardous situations, implements measures to protect workers’ health and psychophysical integrity.
In compliance with law provisions in force on this subject, our company works with associations and competent authorities in developing regulations ever more pertinent to the health needs of the workers. It acts in conjunction with local communities, makes always known its commitment towards the workers, the community and the environment and pledges to seek constant improvements of its own actions in protecting the employees and third parties working with it.
Pergemine operates a Safety & Health management system as a tool of prevention, integration and constant improvement, aimed at reaching excellence in processes and results, through the engagement of motivated and competent resources. Improvement and expansion projects of the management system are also executed, with the goal to strengthen the top-level positions reached. Improved results are coupled with the increasing value of the operations performed.
In reference to OHSAS 18001 standard, the following points are essential elements in Pergemine’s management style:
In pursuing continuous improvement, periodic updates to the Management System are implemented, in particular:
"We are aware that nature is a shared good: it belongs to no one in particular, but must be protected by all! For this reason, we want to excel in our field of activity and do our best to maintain unaltered the community’s most precious heritage: nature"
Pergemine is aware that activities directly and indirectly connected to providing drilling contractor services to third parties affect the environment and has decided that such activities must be carried out with maximum respect of the surrounding environment and by enacting all the technical and organizational precautions designed to contain the impact to acceptable and compatible levels.
Pergemine’s objective is therefore to reach and constantly improve a high-level standard on the matter of protecting the environmental and community.
Pergemine has developed for some years now initiatives meant at researching and applying technologies with lesser environmental impact and energy savings in reference to its own environmental responsibilities, identifiable by the contract that sets the relation between the Customer and Pergemine.
With this statement, Pergemine pledges to develop an Environmental Management System at its drill sites compliant with UNI EN ISO 14001 (November 1996 edition). A well-structured system integrated with the whole set of management activities, made of a series of procedures, methodologies and operational controls on pollution prevention systems, and focused on reaching specific objectives in hierarchical order. This is how Pergemine wants to implement and maintain a series of activities fit to protect the environment in which it operates, in every relevant aspect, by monitoring each production process in consideration of the environmental impact.
Pergemine’s policy on the environment aims at keeping an active Environmental Management System, in compliance with legal standards and contractual provisions, characterized by the definition of specific objectives and goals on environmental matters that Pergemine can control or can influence directly or indirectly, with the aim to obtain UNI EN ISO 14001 certification from an independent qualified third party board.
Therefore, within the context of its own activity, Pergemine takes full responsibility for the environmental impact it produces and commits to:
Reaching the objectives defined by Top Management can be achieved only with the collaboration of all the workers. This is why Pergemine adopted a series of procedures set to protect the environment. The task for each staff member, and in particular of senior and junior managers for the respective area of responsibilities, is to verify and periodically ensure that the principles set are respected. And more of all, Pergemine wants to develop awareness in each worker, so that he/she becomes an active subject in the safeguard of the environment.
Activities with substantial environmental impact are monitored through procedures defined and described in the Environment Management Manual. The following points are identified as fundamental elements of the style of management:
Electrification of the sites. Contrary to the traditional sites, where electricity is provided via generator groups powered by diesel engines, the Val D’Agri sites use power grid electricity for their operations: no CO2 emission in the atmosphere;
