WHEN PERFORMING THEIR ACTIVITIES IN A SAFE MANNER.

Being aware of that it’s how we begin working every day at QGOG, and this is the main topic of this edition. We invite all collaborators to read our newsletter. In all articles, you will find Safety, either as the main topic or mentioning or referring to our corporate actions, both operational and

More than learning about those actions, it is important that we all recognize ourselves as part of them, because Safety – apart from being a key Value to the company – needs to be a constant element in our activities. The intention is that practice, which begins in corporate life, extends to the personal, social and family areas of our lives. The record numbers of no accidents in our operational units, the reference as a safe company in the oil and gas market, and the investment in QSMS and of the whole company in Safety campaigns are only examples of how much we have accomplished, as we always keep Safety in the North of our compass.
