Working Toward Zero Incidents

IIdentifying risks and proactively seeking prevention measures is something we practice in all of our operating areas. Critical to this process is our Health, Safety, Environment and Regulatory (HSER) Compliance Assurance team. This team conducts audits across company operations, striving to identify potential safety or environmental hazards. In partnership with our Operations teams, changes are implemented to reduce EHSR-related risk.

Should an incident occur, it is our commitment to learn from it and, where appropriate, improve our processes. To deliver on this commitment, we utilize a root cause investigation system to standardize our reporting, investigation and analysis of incidents. This system enables us to determine the root causes of incidents and discern where and what improvements are necessary.


Pipeline Safety

Although pipelines are the safest and most efficient way to transport oil and natural gas, it is critical that we maintain our pipelines properly and educate the public about identifying leaks and preventing pipeline damage.

Chesapeake participates in one call programs in 14 different states, helping to ensure Chesapeake’s underground assets are recorded and marked accurately. Chesapeake’s field personnel process one call tickets, mark underground utilities and oversee ground disturbance activities on site. In 2018, the company responded to nearly 19,000 one call tickets.

Each year the company also participates in National Dig Safely Month and National 811 Day to increase awareness for calling before digging, with a goal of reducing line strikes. During this month, we provide resources both internally and externally to help educate our employees and the public.
