Health, Safety and Environment (“HSE”)

Operational Excellence

Range is committed to “Operational Excellence”, a core value that drives achievement of its sustainable growth and financial performance. The Company’s vision of “Zero Harm” is that “no one gets hurt and nothing gets harmed” and as a result HSE performance is a critical element of our Operational Excellence goal. It is, therefore, the Policy of the Company, and far as is reasonably practicable, to:

  • Implement and maintain HSE management systems to prevent accidents, occupational injuries, illnesses and environmental incidence;
  • Meet or exceed compliance with all applicable HSE laws and regulations;
  •  Ensure the provision and maintenance of a safe work environment, safe equipment and work   procedures;
  • Foster a culture where all employees and contractors are held accountable for following all Company Policies and Procedures;
  • Provide appropriate training, re-training and supervision to maintain the competence levels of all employees to safely perform their duties;
  • Ensure timely investigation and reporting of all HSE related incidents; and
  • Conduct regular reviews of the Company’s Policies and Procedures.

During 2016, Range has seen a substantial improvement in all key HSE indicators including Lost Time Incident (“LTI”) frequency and environmental incidents, which is a notable achievement. The Company is proud to have decreased the LTI frequency rate by 75% to 0.61, which is significantly below the average of 1.35 reported by the International Association of Drilling Contractors for the onshore US Oil & Gas Industry.

Environment

Concern for the environment is of utmost importance to Range where our policy is to minimise our potential environmental impact by striving to:

  • Protect the natural environment;
  • Implement a cost effective waste and emissions management programme to prevent and control pollution;
  •  Manage, monitor and communicate our environmental performance; and
  •  Integrate environmental considerations into all our business processes and strive for continuous improvement.
