We care for the lives of our employees and pay great attention to their health. We have issued a series of policies and taken effective measures to improve our healthcare system, in order to offer employees a healthy and pleasant working environment.
We ensure the occupational health of our employees through an integrated, prevention-oriented approach encompassing infrastructure development, occupational health checks, and improved health management and services in line with the Law of the People’s Republic of China on Prevention and Control of Occupational Diseases. We provide the same health and labor protection for temporary employees, contract employees and contractor’s employees. We have carried out research on occupational health management, consolidated the health management on production frontlines, especially at field construction sites, and enhanced the risk prevention and control regarding occupational disease hazards and health monitoring.
As an oil and gas player, we identify job-related occupational hazards in our particular operational environment, maintain strict controls on sites with hazardous operations, strengthen the monitoring of occupational health and occupational disease hazards, improve the environment of construction operations, and provide health training for corporate executives, project managers and key technicians, to improve their professional skills and awareness of health risks.
To improve the health of our employees at our overseas projects, we continue to improve mechanisms for healthcare and take action to prevent and control diseases pursuant to local environment and medical availability. Based on the climate and healthcare conditions in host countries, we provide healthcare services including disease prevention, dietary hygiene and psychological counseling. As overseas employees usually work in remote areas with limited medical facilities and tough living conditions, we have developed a routine work shift system for overseas employees, and flexibly arrange their vacations back in China in order to ensure their physical and mental health.
