In response to the emergence of COVID-19, we continue to monitor and take seriously the guidelines of health experts and are adhering to the highest possible standards issued by the World Health Organization (WHO) and Centers for Disease Control (CDC), as well as governments and regulators across our areas of operations. We have implemented a number of measures to safeguard the health of our employees, contractors and the community, while continuing to operate responsibly and maintaining the resiliency of the Company.
The health and safety of our employees and their families, as well as our clients, vendors, and the public is one of our core values at Pioneer. As part of our safety culture, we believe it is unacceptable for anyone to get injured at work, and we want our employees to take this culture home to their families and local communities. Our vision is to create a future where living safe is part of the fiber of everyone’s being—a future where everyone in the workplace is committed to, and recognizes the possibility of, working without incident or injury. We support that commitment with education, training, technology advancements, management involvement and support, and a company-wide culture of safety.
We focus on our culture because we believe that great results can be achieved by building strong relationships and a positive team spirit. We are creating an environment in which all people are treated with dignity and respect, one that is personally fulfilling for all our employees, where we watch out for each other's safety, and where everyone values doing things safely because it is the right thing to do.
IADC accreditation of U.S. drilling and international safety training programs affirms our commitment to comprehensive training for all new rig personnel.
