Many elements form our QHSE Management System. Together, they form a complex structure where one element supports the other elements. The Five core elements of our system include: Policies and Procedures, Leadership, Team Engagement, Continuous improvement and Failure Adaptation.

At SDF Oil Well Technology. – accident prevention has always been, and always will be, the number one priority at SDF. Providing a safe and healthy work environment is crucial to the safety and success of our team members, their families, and to the success of our company.


Through our HSE Rewards program, Zero Tolerance system and Safety training program we are able to keep our HSE performance in top shape.

Having a viable accident prevention program for our team members is a form of insurance and security.

The success of such a program requires not only individual foresight in our daily activities, but also requires ‘Safety’ to be first in everyone’s mind at all times. Through repetition, daily monitoring, and accountability measures, ‘Safety’ have become an automatic part of our daily lives at SDF Oil Well Technology.
SDF recognizes the safety of all team members involved at work is paramount toward the success of the team. Eliminating unsafe acts, unsafe conditions, and preventing unscheduled near miss incidents is of utmost concern to SDF.

The QHSE Management System at SDF outline key responsibilities every team member is expected to follow. Our team members are expected to perform their respective jobs while following specific procedures already in place, with safety the number one thought in mind.

Safety remains a primary factor when measuring the overall performance of our team members.

SDF willingly complies with all local and industry safety, health and environmental rules and regulations, and remains pro-active by providing the necessary training, tools, and procedures, which will ensure our team members are better able to comply with these HSE requirements.


SDF focuses on raising the standards through Continuous Improvement and Failure Adaptation. A Daily work plan and Job Safety Analysis (JSA) is completed for every working shift as the base for safe operations and continuous improvement. When at-risk conditions or behaviors are witnessed, STOP observation cards are submitted. Incident investigations are conducted using Root Cause Analysis (RCA) and corrective actions are identified. Corrective actions are tracked to full implementation and Safety Alerts are distributed to inform all impacted employees.
Significant incidents are presented to an incident review HSE board to ensure sufficient corrective actions are implemented.


SDF offers policies and procedures specific to the services we provide that are aligned with IADC standards to allow for a smooth internal auditing process. Through a strict document control process – the most up to date revisions are available to all personnel and revisions are shared via Safety Meetings. As part of our commitment to continuous improvement, an annual management HSE review is completed to implement lessons learned and future objectives.


SDF employees receive various levels of training and career development including an internal technical workshop training program, Standard Operating Procedure (SOP) training, leadership training, and competency assurance.

Further, goals and KPI’s are established for each operating team and stop work accountability is used to assess noncompliance.
