QEP Resources respects the environment and the communities where we live, work and operate. Our adherence to industry regulations and state-of-the-art well construction methods, paired with ongoing water, air and land conservation initiatives, help to ensure we conduct our business with respect and care for the environment, and manage risks to drive sustainable business growth.
We are committed to protecting the health and safety of all personnel who are a part of our operations and those who live in the communities in which we operate. For example, contractors are required to provide their health, safety and environment program and performance data to us via a third party database. We evaluate the information and QEP contractors are hired and managed accordingly.
Wherever we operate, we focus on the protection of the health, safety and well-being of our employees, families, friends and neighbors. These are fundamental responsibilities of our company and of each employee. We believe that no aspect of our operations is of greater importance.
Our Values in Action
QEP works responsibly, resourcefully and respectfully to ensure the health, safety and environmental performance of our operations.
Staying Safe & Protecting the Environment
At QEP, we strive to minimize our impact to the environment, and there is no job so important or timetable so critical that we will sacrifice the safety of our employees and communities.
Our governance model helps ensure that we are upholding our commitment to Health, Safety and the Environment (HSE), and include: (1) Integration of HSE metrics into the company’s pay and annual incentive plan; (2) Monthly and quarterly reviews of HSE performance, including key performance indicators, with our board of directors, management teams and employees; (3) Internal audit program; and (4) Organizational focus on continuous improvement.
